Maybe I don't belong on THIS list, because I'm not a developer.
Pipermail is not part of Mailman? Ah.

I'm not asking for a better archiver, as I understand it; just a change
in the HTML template in which the archive levels are presented. Even if
the monthly archive pages and the individual posts (such as
.../pipermail/LISTNAME/2004-March/date.html and
...//pipermail/cyp-list/2004-March/000123.html) had links BACK TO THE
MAIN ARCHIVE PAGE (.../pipermail/LISTNAME/) -- a single static link in
the HTML templates -- it would be a real improvement.

The posts and the monthly archive pages now have links saying
  "More information about the LISTNAME mailing list"
  "More info on this list... "
 which both point to

If that can be generated, so can a link to .../pipermail/LISTNAME/ .
So... where do I ask, if not here?
