Yeah, because the ASF is probably the only entity using mod_mbox for
his *own* archives, which are retreived via Rsync.

This is NOT the case of everybody. Just a few days ago, I received an
email from someone who set up mod_mbox succesfully from his
month-splitted mbox files. Do you see any rsync in there ?

Btw, you are making the same confusion with the scripts : they are for
ASF purposes only, or even for your purposes. Yeah, that's your
account name on the top of all of them.

+1 here. We should copy the mod_mbox/ directory from the website
before creating the tarball.
