If it's not a lot of trouble, I don't see why we wouldn't preserve the
archives.  People do search them when they can find them [1].  But if
it's going to take more than a couple hours, then maybe you're right and
it doesn't really matter.

Along the same lines, JFFSx might benefit from it's own homepage as
opposed to a few references on the linux-mtd page.  However, both the
new list and a new website require admin and upkeep which is why I was
asking David what his thoughts were.  Ultimately, it's his machines and
time that are required if they are to be on


[1] I just noticed that a link to the existing jffs-dev mailing list
seems to be missing from the linux-mtd homepage.  This should probably
be corrected.
