I'm glad to hear that!

Making it available at orgmode.org sounds fine to me.  My preference
would be for the orgmode.org server to host an actual mirror of the
archive.  This wouldn't involve setting up incoming mail on the server;
getting new messages would be a "git fetch && public-inbox-index".
Hopefully setting things up would be pretty painless given that I
already have a working setup.

And, as a general note, I'd be happy to see others host mirrors.  One of
the great things about public-inbox is that it makes it easy to do so.

True :)  In my view it'd be best to rewrite the URLs in a form that
includes the message ID.  That (1) makes it easier to rewrite them to a
different host/server if they break in the future and (2) lets users
find the message in whatever archive they prefer, including their local
mail, as long as lookup by message ID is supported.

If anyone is interested in the Gmane ID to message ID mappings, you can
get them with

  curl -d'' -XPOST https://yhetil.org/orgmode/gmane.sql.gz | \
    gzip -dc | sqlite3 gmane.sqlite3

(Note that -d'' seems to be necessary but shouldn't be.  I haven't
looked into it, though.)
