It depends which archive pages you're talking about. The table of
contents is rebuilt with every message and should be OK. The periodic
(monthly) index pages are only rebuilt when a post is added so old
periods are not usually updated. The html message pages themselves are
never updated.

Thus if you make changes that affect these such as changing the list
language, you have to rebuild the archives to update most of the html
pages. See

bin/arch --help
