[Mailman-Users] gzipped archive files.

On our system, we do a monthly rotation of archives, and
keep about 12 months of the gzipped files in the *.mbox directories.
Then periodically we clean up the archives when we are running
out of space and truncate the archives which can be downloaded,
to either 6 or 12 months using the arch --wipe mailman feature.
However, we still are running out of space on our mailman server
and I was looking around where I might gain some space.
I noticed that we are gzipping the archive files, nightly
27 3 * * * /usr/bin/python -S /opt/mailman/cron/nightly_gzip
but it also leaves a copy of the uncompressed archives.
Is this the proper behavior?
Is it possible to only have the gzipped archives and not
the text files?
If I comment out the above nightly_gzip line will it
cause a problem?
