It's an archive that is stable, long-term and trustable. That means it's
a great historical resource, and that when providing URLs referencing
past discussions, a URL to the Apache email archives is a very good way
to do that.

I agree that it's a shame there is no decent search facility though. I
thought that last year's Google Summer of Code included a project to
enhance the apache http mod_mbox to provide search functionality. Do I
remember wrong, or did that project not work out?
