well, unfortunately, I have managed to wipeout the index.html file
of the full archive there.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARgh!
[the archives, its HTML pages, everything is still there, but
 all the older parts are currently not *linked* to]

Recreating everything from scratch (1997) would need so many
hours --- where mailman delivery to r-help was completely blocked ---

that I'm considering other plans to get that file back
(and only recreate the "March 2006" part).

All this mess just because of a spam that I wanted to have
removed, something which needs careful manual intervention; I
have failed in my care at one place.
