I surely can understand if an archive requires a login, looking at
my own tiny mailing-lists and the (spam) traffic that hits them.
It actully makes me even more thankful to be able to use those
wonderful public services like Gmane / Gmene / mail-archive which
also i use for many years.

 |those intentional changes instead of the Great Crash.

Some subscribers seem to have been lost, or maybe they reject
.. but no, the list address is still the same and these services
subscribe and then just stay.  Maybe, nonetheless i mean, the server address?  I will ask the mail-archive
people about that, but i am not in the position to fill in the
missing messages, i do not archivy anything i receive.
