This looks like a good opportunity to mention that mailman-users and
mailman-developers are now also archived at:
See this particular thread at:
They asked for permission to join -dev so that it could be archived on
their site. At the time, their archives didn't have munged email
addresses, and Barry and I decided that if they fixed their archives to
not expose email addresses, he would give them permission to join -dev
and to archive mailman lists..
I like gmane's feature of making lists accessible in a newsgroup
fashion, and I like free.net's format of providing the list in a
threaded fashion via the web. This is not an endorsement of either
site, just a personal observation of some of the positive features each
of them offers over traditional list archives. Some list admins might
want to offer their lists to be mirrored/archived at more than one site.
While RFC 2369 only allows for one List-Archive: URL, I wonder if email
client implementations that understand 2369 (is there a list of which
ones are?) are generous in their response when a list email has more
than List-Archive header... Be generous in what you accept and all
