I run some mailing lists. I am thinking about providing (a) usenet
version of the lists, and (b) a fully searchable archive of the lists.
Obviously tools are available to provide both of these services, but
it seems like using them requires duplicate storage of the entire
archive. News servers have their particular format, and all of the
search software I've seen works with mailing list archives in a
slightly different format.
I could probably take some existing tools and hack them to agree on a
format, but the time I have to spare for this is very limited. For
the time being, I could probably live with the double storage (disk is
cheap, after all). But I'm wondering if anyone can point me to a
better solution up front.
Thanks very much!
