It happens the information in the header of those messages are all fake and the actual messages end in the wrong mail box. I hope someone can fix the problem.

As an example of the known problems: Bapt reported in:


After analysis, freebsd-bugs mailing list archives have been edited manually
multiple times in the last 18 years, making it impossible to regenerates in a
reliable manner archive with compatible URL.

This happenned too often to be able to be easily fixed.

It is more than bookmarks that do not find anything. It is also
URL's that now find a different message than it used to. The
above was in response to my reporting an example of such. My
example that I used to report the issue was for freebsd-arm,
not freebsd-bugs. I'm not sure if the "freebsd-bugs" in the
quote was a typo or what.

In my example the numbering had shifted by 2: 020854 -> 020856
