I don't know what you mean by "(archived)". The static pages list the
*non*-archived reports, and are updated daily. It's the older, archived
reports that are not included.

They can:

1) search the static pages via their search engine of choice. These all
contain big links (in red) to the dynamic pages.

2) search the bug mailing list archives using their search engine of
choice, or the supplied lists.gnu.org search

3) use the normal debbugs search

4) use the full-text debbugs search

Not AFAIK (to both questions). It's a virtual machine that has a slice
of some large-ish, modern-ish, machine (I guess). It seems quite capable
of doing what it needs to do, IMO. I don't see a need to allow search
engines to run cgi queries on it.
