The .txt file is the one actually written by the archiver. The .txt.gz
is for faster downloading. If you don't want the .txt.gz file, make
sure you do not have


in mm_cfg.py (i.e. it has it's default setting GZIP_ARCHIVE_TXT_FILES =
No from Defaults.py) and change the Mailman cron jobs to remove or
comment out the cron/nightly_gzip job. Also see the comment in
Defaults.py about GZIP_ARCHIVE_TXT_FILES.

Alternatively, you can keep the .txt.gz files and delete old .txt files
as long as you're sure you won't get a backdated post in the future.
