Since the answer was yes, I've thrown something together....
Take a look at http://www.co.iup.edu/netbsd-port-pmax/ (yeah, it's on an
Ultrix host--but not for much longer :-).
At any rate, I took the original FTP archives and fed them to mhonarc--I
did not split files up, however. As a result, there is some overlap in
late december and early January postings (Early Jan 1997 postings might be
hanging on in 1996, for example). Hey, I said it was a _quick_ hack.
For those of you who care: The archives are updated "in real time"--I
subscribed a qmail alias to the list, which feeds each message to mhonarc
as soon as it is received. FWIW, this is a brutally easy way to maintain
a web archive--it might be worth mentioning to core or whoever is
responsible for such things (since I think that one or more of the
netbsd.org mailservers are running qmail).
I have no immediate plans to implement a search function (finals are
quickly approaching, and I don't have the time). Find or search in those
browsers will have to suffice.
