Mail-Archive is experiencing technical problems, all archives are
temporarily offline and are being actively restored from backup. Because of
the very large volume of data, this process takes a long time - multiple
days so far, and possible a few more are required. Thank you for your

This is not a Mailman issue per se. The standard archive is still available
at http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/ That just does not have
a built in search faciltity.

In that case submit some patches or quit bitching. There are already too
many spectators and too few players.
I am kicking. I have been publishing and maintaining patches to integrate
htdig search with MM since MM 2.0.6 and none of the MM support lists use
the facility. When I asked thru this list how many people used the patches
I got 3 replies; so obviously not many sites need searchable Mailman archives.
All users please note that MM 2.1.3 is the last version of MM for which I
shall be publishing revisions of the #444884 patch. I will make one last
effort to publish a generic version of the htdig integration patch which
provides a framework for integrating other search engiones. Then I give up.
Life is too short to continue pushing this particular rope uphill.
