I am trying to get the entire archive indexed, so that a keyword search will
be possible. That does not obviate the need for carefully chosen
subjects (I am sure we all are experienced in this).
Might I also ask about longer term archiving? After a year or so,
and depending on how the list develops, I feel that a permanent
record of these discussions 'might' be desirable (e.g
a CD ROM with an ISBN number, probably as part of
another project). So should we
all bear this in mind when we post? Have any other IETF/W3C etc
lists been so archived. I dont much prowl around them nowadays,
although I have seen lists quite literally stop in mid air as they
transfer elsewhere (or the moderator changes job!). Clearly, if
a long term archive is considered, then how much/any editing
should/can be applied etc etc. I think its worth raising these issues
right at the start, so we dont have to fret later on.
Aplogies for the fact that I did not mention XML once!
