Hi Mark,

I've tested the modified HyperDatabase.py file and it does indeed reverse the chronological order of the archives (but only in date view).
And also as you said, it was necessary to "/bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME" to reverse any existing archives.

Thanks again,

And the patch refactored for style against 2.1.20 is

$ diff -u 2.1/Mailman/Archiver/HyperDatabase.py

def first(self, archive, index):
+ if index == 'date':
+ dateIndex = 1
+ else:
+ dateIndex = 0
index = getattr(self, index + 'Index')
+ if dateIndex == 1:
+ index.sorted.reverse()
key, msgid = index.first()
return msgid
except KeyError:
