My ISP ( https://www.tigertech.net/ ) uses MHonArc to archive
Mailman mailing lists. It is configured to have archives in
one continuous sequence (not broken up into monthly pages).
The index page for my main list which presents the first 200
messages ( with links to older index pages ) is at
http://lists.cohousing.org/archives/cohousing-l/

I think NOT breaking messages into monthly pages is the best
feature of the way it is installed.

A longstanding "feature" of these archives is that "Date" links from
old messages fail which makes it difficult to get to old index pages
to browse if you start with a given message (which was typically found
by searching). We have Namazu search.

The problem is (for example for a 2009 message #29965 on my main list)
that the Date link on the message page is to:
http://lists.cohousing.org/archives/cohousing-l/index.html#29965

But it should be (currently it keeps changing as new messages are
archived due to the data structure) to:
http://lists.cohousing.org/archives/cohousing-l/mail50.html#29965

As a workaround I have a date index to index pages that I
periodically update: http://l.cohousing.org/arc-dex.htm

But a fix to the Date links would be much better.
