There are no archives in /usr/local/mailman/archives/public. The
archives are in /usr/local/mailman/archives/private whether or not
they are public. For a public archive, there is also a symlink from
/usr/local/mailman/archives/public/list to

The initial 'empty' archive (just the
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/list/index.html file and the
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/list.mbox/ directory) is created
when the list is created whether or not archiving is enabled.

There is probably some error in archiving resulting in log entries and
shunted messages destined for the archive. What's in Mailman's error
