> Replace *.mbox files with links
> -------------------------------
>                 Key: INFRA-16613
>                 URL:
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Mail Archives
>            Reporter: Sebb
>            Priority: Major
> The mbox directories on mail-archives.a.o generally have the following entries for the
mailbox sources:
> yyyymm
> yyyymm.mbox -> yyyymm
> yyyymm.gz
> where yyyymm is e.g. 201801
> The utility that extracts the indexes expects to find *.mbox files, however the mboxes
are currently archived into files without the .mbox extension. So the scripts create the .mbox
file as a soft link.
> I assume the scripts may have changed at some point, because there are quite a few yyyymm.mbox
entries which are files rather than links.
> If the .gz file is re-extracted, this will normally be to the yyyymm file.
> If the mbox file is not also overridden then the archive as published may not agree with
the contents of the .gz file.
> AFAICT there are no scripts which create .mbox files (only links).
> ISTM that the .mbox files should be removed and replaced with links.
> Should check that yyyymm.mbox agrees with yyyymm before doing so.
> Note that the corresponding mbox files on mail-private.a.o are all set up as links.
