I have Mailman set-up with mHonarc as the external archiver. When I send the
list a message I get back a messages saying it has been posted and a copy of
the message because I'm on the list but the messages doesn't get added to
the archive.

The entry for PUBLIC_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER in mm_cfg.py is:
)s;/usr/bin/mhonarc -add -outdir /home/mailman/archives/private/%(listname)s
xfname index.html -nosaveresources -rcfile /home/mailman/mhonarc.mrc

The same entry is used for PRIVATE_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER 

I can get the message added by running the following home made script
rm -rf /home/mailman/archives/private/$1
mkdir -p /home/mailman/archives/private/$1
/usr/bin/mhonarc /home/mailman/archives/private/$1.mbox/$1.mbox -outdir
ilman/archives/private/$1 -idxfname index.html -nosaveresources -rcfile
chmod -R 755 /home/mailman/archives/private/$1

How come the messages don't get added to the archive when they arrive??
