I took another look at this page, it looks like we should be able to 
update the links by editing the templates from which the HTML files 
are built.  I've done that, and I'm in the process of completely 
re-generating the entire archive for mailman-users going back to the 
beginning of the list in 1998.  This should do what we need, although 
it will take a while to complete.

Oh, and all links into the archive will now be broken -- whatever 
article number you thought you were linking to is now going to point 
to a different article than the one you had originally found.  This 
is a side-effect of the way that Mailman generates the archives, and 
happens every time you do a complete regeneration.

This means we'll probably have to go back into the FAQ Wizard and 
clean up a lot of those entries, so that the links point to the new 
article number for the desired article in question.

e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
