Hi Mark, all,
No problem. The archives have been offline for so long a week or two

Been searching around for documentation regarding
non-time-sequentially-ordered mailman archives. My reading of
that we can add the missing posts any time and simply need to regenerated
the entire archive when we do.
That being the case, I think I should restore the mailing list archives and
when we get to it, we can add the missing mails to the armedbear-devel
list's archive. That would remove the pressure off of you to come up with
the missing mails asap.
Would that work for you?
