As Dragon notes, this is because the original posts had bad Date:
headers. In more recent Mailman versions, this is prevented by (from
ARCHIVER_CLOBBER_DATE_POLICY = 2
ARCHIVER_ALLOWABLE_SANE_DATE_SKEW = days(15)
Nothing bad will happen when we reach those dates. In fact, it's
happened before. IIRC, there were '2008' posts from years back that we
have already caught up to.
