I tried to get the list gatewayed to the old group on gmane.org but
didn't hear back. gmane gives web access (maybe not for
posting) and archiving.

I don't get on with the interafce to markmail, and it loses
information -- I don't think I could even get past the captcha to
extract sender addresses.
The mailman archives should e indexed in place, and I can get
back on to the system and check the setup. Else I can
mirror and index them elsewhere. I guess they should be mirrored
anyhow. Is anyone already doing that as a backup?
Excuse the typping -- I have a broken wrist
