Anyone else who's interested might like to know that the MHonArc HTML archive appears to contain information not in the mbox archives, in an obfuscated form (see page source, comments at top such as "X-From-R13"). With sufficient effort it would presumably be possible to massage these back into the mbox archives; it may be worth scraping the HTML list archives as well as the mboxes, if you care enough.

Since Gna is shutting down, I'd like to preserve the project history in our Gna mailing list archives.

The list archive pages have links to mbox files, which I have been routinely backing up. However, these archives are redacted; email addresses munged with "@domain.hid", etc.

Are there any unredacted archives anywhere, and if so, can they be made available to project admins before the shutdown?
