That would explain it.  But then how do you manage things like messages
that require approval?  I guess by having the admin reply to the
message?  And then how do admins do admin things like adding other admins?

Not a big deal.  But is kind of a nice way to notice if things aren't
working, especially for lists that get little or no traffic.

I don't remember what I was looking at but I got 404's.  But now I know
the correct link, so no problems.

That's ok with me.  I'm less concerned about how it looks than in having
the actual archive.

And in terms of archives, I see that the pipermail archive only has
archives of cmucl-imp, cmucl-help, cmucl-cvs, and cmucl-ticket up
through Mar or so.  While some may think cmucl is dead, there has been
some traffic on those lists after Mar.  I have my own copies of messages
on the lists, but it would be nice to have a more public archive.

Can't complain about the delay if I didn't complain what I thought was
not working until now. :-)
