I think this is OS dependent, but in most cases, permissions on
archives/private need to be 'drwxrws--x'. It is the o+x that is
critical for public archive access.

archives/public/listname is a symlink to archives/private/listname, and
archives/private/listname is world readable, but it still can't be
accessed by others, at least in most *nix flavors, unless
archives/private/ is world searchable.
