As mailing list site manager, I have recently e-talked with
some mailman developers about other problems with the simple
pipermail archiving {which is builtin default for mailman lists}.

Some then mentioned the possibility of using MHonARC instead of
pipermail.  But first, we'll definitely have a (minor) upgrade
of mailman itself.  Then I might have a look into using
alternatives to pipermail.  If someone has experience or
valuable information here, I'd be glad.
