The lists used to be elsewhere until February 2005, when Jason Kyle,
the old maintainer (and founder of the list) decided that he no longer
could offer the quality of service needed for such a list by hosting
it on his private machine, and asked for an option to move it onto
some public infrastructure.

Jason did supply all his old archives to the admins of
savannah.nongnu.org, so they could make them available as well.  So if
some very old items are missing, this is most likely due to him not
archiving them back in those days.  I can't exactly remember when the
list has been founded, but it can't be too much that is missing, it
must have been some time around 2001.

However, you won't really need them other than perhaps for historic
reasons. ;-)  A lot of things have evolved over time, and the tips
someone might have given back in those days wouldn't be applicable
to today's tools anyway.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
