Thanks.  I assume that's -users.  If you have articles from the -dev
list, that would probably be useful.  There is at least some interesting
stuff there.  The dump of -users from Gmane goes back to 2006, and
should be complete modulo any no-archive headers, so probably only older
articles are interesting.  I suspect older messages are of relatively
little use, but still worth preserving.  If Reuti archives his replies,
that's a substantial fraction of the traffic!

The interface is less than pleasant, I think.  I don't know what will
happen to those archives when the lists die -- I don't know if they
already have done -- so it's worth having other sources.

I'll give archives a while to appear at Oracle and ask for them if they
don't.  In the meantime, I'll check what will happen to the Gmane -users
archive and try to produce a useful searchable archive of that if
