Yes I will do that. So far it looks pretty easy to extract just mails for
jack-devel. It needs a small parser per Mail to pick just the headers of
interest and handle content encoding (some mails have a base64 body). In
that step obfuscating the mail address is reasonable. I think nabble just
replaces the '@' with ' at ', which is better than nothing.
A flat file ordered by time would be the minimum. A better solution would
respect In-Reply-To and Message-ID headers in order to follow the thread.
It's good that data is not lost. In any case if there is something ready
to put out I'll first send a sample here.
