Thank you for the explanation.  Very useful information.

Hmm...  It looks like the mbox file for that starts in 2009 and is the
full archive continuously since then to the present day.

  -rw-rw-r-- 1 list list 2.3G Mar 29 13:57 

But that is a different thing to look into at some point.

I think we should inject them into debbugs.  Is that large
debbugs-submit.mbox the best pristine source for the email?  If so
then I can split out the recent messages that were after the "Mar 28
11:37" timestamp when things seem to have been stopped.  Or if there
is a better way to identify the last processed message and the first
unprocessed message?  And also the first message that is now being
processed.  So that a range of messages can be extracted.
