Ok, I've been now testing a new, semi-realtime, mechanism to archive the
lists. What's important is that this is something I can support also in
the future, so the archiving can continue for all three lists.

What I'm missing now is web space. I'd need:

 * around +0.5G of web space
    - the LAA/LAD/LAU archives are currently 0.5G, growing by 15M 
      each month
    - I'll have to move eca.cx to a new server soon and I won't have
      enough web space on the new server :(
 * update via rsync-over-ssh
    - mirroring the whole eca.cx/la[adu] tree
 * if at all possible, a separate host name like lists.foobar.org
    - possibility to use google to search the lists (by 
      searching with "site:lists.foobar.com keywords")
    - htdig is a bit painful to maintain, I'd rather use google

... I will build some server-side magic to make redirects from
eca.cx/la[adu] to the new archive location so that existing links to the
archived mails will continue to work (and not just temporarily).

Now if anyone here is willing to donate some webspace for this purpose
(only the list archives, nothing else), please contact me privately.
