I think the MarkMail archive is sufficient.  But if you or anyone else
wants to make another mailing list archive over here at Apache, then
you are welcome to do so.

But my personal interest is in creating a thriving community and an
excellent product here at Apache.  I have zero interest in maintaining
a "Museum of OpenOffice".  So preserving 11 years of mailing list
archives is  not high on my list of priorities.  My energy is
dedicated to other tasks.  But I have no objections if anyone else
wants to pursue this.
