I thought so, until I discovered that mailing list archives at had been truncated on 2000-09.  I have a copy of
the archives of address@hidden of 1998-04 on my disk (it
contains a lengthy discussion about --enable-maintainer-mode)
which I downloaded from and which is not available
there anymore.

Fortunately, address@hidden has been archived at several
places.  FWIW, here is where to dig copies of old mails sent to
address@hidden:        2000-09 ... today  1997    ... 2002           2002-03 ... today  1999-04 ... today

For address@hidden, it worse since AFAIK, it's only
archived at and

address@hidden is also archived on sourceware, but the
archives start at 1999-04.  I've just discovered that seems to cover
address@hidden for 1997-2002.

address@hidden is only archived at and  It is quite young so the archive is
complete, however I fear the day it will be cut.
