  Hum, it's even easy to find from the main gnome page ...
And it looks great too !
Maybe a direct link to the archive from the home page may help.

 I think we should move gdome archives there (and probably the list too)
It might make sense to move the libxml list too ...

  Also foundation announce seems there but the foundation lists is not
listed in:

  And if there is one list which must be archived there it's the foundation
one !!!

   => no such list ..

 Is it due to a technical problem ? Where are are the archives ?

   => 404
