Ok, all of the archives are fixed. Here's an example of a new link: http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-gwn/msg_916064a3a0913217d311541108d04782.xml That's going to be constant forever now, regardless of how many times mhonarc rebuilds it's entire index. However, please note that any attachments linked from a mail might change their URLs depending on mhonarc, so you should only link directly to the mail itself. If you see any problems with mails, if you see any new problems with archive mails, please file a bug for Infrastructure. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux Developer & Infra Guy E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11AC BA4F 4778 E3F6 E4ED F38E B27B 944E 3488 4E85
