[ +cc Eric Wong, mostly to say thanks for all the work he puts into
  public-inbox, which is the software behind these archives, but also so
  that he can correct me if I misrepresent any capabilities of or plans

The web interface (<https://orgmode.org/list> or
<https://yhetil.org/orgmode>) is the main mechanism for searching.  You
don't necessarily have to leave Emacs for that, as public-inbox's pages
render nicely in EWW.  But of course that's not the Gnus-based search
you're hoping for.

I use Gnus to follow some lists via NNTP, a mix of public-inbox archives
and gmane.io, but I've never really done any fancy searching from it and
don't use Gnus for my mail.  To try it out, I hit GG to search on a
gmane.io list, but got an error [^1], so I suppose its search capability
went away with Gmane's HTTP interface.

Poking around a bit, I guess nnweb.el would be the main place that
public-inbox's web search could be integrated into Gnus?  I've been
(slowly) working on an Emacs package [^2] that adds public-inbox-related
functionality to different "endpoints" (currently Notmuch, Gnus, EWW,
Elfeed), and I'd be interested in any ideas for improving the Gnus

A couple of other notes:

  * You can get the entire archive locally with a 'git clone', in which
    case you can transform it into a form that can be indexed/searched
    however you prefer (including with public-inbox, running a local
    public-inbox-httpd).  There are some pointers on extracting an
    archive to a Maildir at

  * In the message above, Eric W. mentions that he is considering
    working on client tools with mairix-like search results.  That'd
    make the search capabilities available locally, and I'd imagine
    something like that could be nicely integrated with Gnus,
    considering it already has a mairix backend to use as a guide.

     This was with Emacs 26.3, and it seems like this interface went
     away entirely in Emacs 27 with 37f0f114df (Remove the Gmane backend
     from nnir, 2018-04-11).
