A related question: are mailing list archives available anywhere
in any conventional email format, such as mbox?
I don’t see much point in having the entire mailing list
traffic in my inbox, but I might be interested in participating
in some of the threads, and downloading a handful of mbox files
and replying to messages there have worked quite well for me
FWIW, GNU.org has such archives available , as do some other
free software projects.
