Subject Re: Script to generate mail archive URL from message
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2011 12:56:51 GMT
Note that in general for any official Apache project work we prefer to 
use links to resources where possible.  I.e. for board 
reports and for the bulk of public websites about Apache projects, we 
expect projects to use the Apache mail-archives.a.o server.

This is because our own Apache infrastructure team is responsible for 
maintaining them, so we can be assured that these links will remain 
present as long as the ASF is around.

This is nothing against other mail archive providers, just a general 
note to ponder.  I certainly like the UI at 
better than mail-archive.a.o for searching out messages and threads.
