The recommended method to reduce or change your archive is to edit the
file .../private/etrans-echanges.mbox/etrans-echanges.mbox and remove
the older messages from the file.
Once you have done this, you can run
/usr/local/mailman/bin/arch --wipe etrans-echange
You can also try and figure out which message in the mbox file you want
to start archiving (instead of deleting them from the file) and run
.../bin/arch --start=N --wipe etrans-echange
At least this should get you started.
