I just wanted everyone to know that right now the mailing list archives
are broken, and it's my fault.

Specifically, it turns out that MHonArc (the software which builds the
web pages from the raw messages) has a bug parsing some MIME parameters
that are encoded with RFC 2231 rules.  And it turns out that if send out
a message/external-body pointer with a long-enough URL, a newer version
of nmh will use those encoding rules ... and that's what I did for the
RC2 version of nmh.

I've already been in communication with Earl Hood (the author of
MHonArc) who confirmed the issue, and he's developing a fix right now.
I don't know when that fix will make it to the mailing list archives on
savannah, though.  The archives on mhonarc.org should be fixed soon,
and you can still access the raw mbox file from the archives on
