abc and I have enhanced the official/local archive of oss-security today
(as well as of other Openwall-hosted mailing lists):

Now these have month and day index pages with message Subjects and Froms
on them (finally).  For example:

Also, there are "prev month", "next month", "prev day", and "next day"
links at top.

If anyone is interested in the code:

Suggestions/votes for further enhancements are welcome (we have a to-do
list for blists internally, but we're unsure of what to work on next).
This must not turn into a lengthy discussion thread of its own, which I
think it won't.


P.S. Five years of linux-kernel (almost 5 GB in mbox format) took two
minutes to re-index, using 25 seconds of CPU time, on a fairly old
machine and with the file being quite fragmented.  The index file size is
approx. 3% of the mbox size (before the addition of Subjects and Froms,
it was approx. 1%).
