Falling Raindrops

	Any web browser


	The old pages had a per-month overview
	page <>
	that can be very handy when you are looking for a mail
	(thread) from a while back.

	All the new index offers is
	<> which
	can be daunting on high-traffic list. The per-thread view
	doesn't help much, either, on e.g. source-changes, or

	On top of that, switching from mails on the new index to the
	old index by the provided "[Old Index]" link usually doesn't
	work. E.g. clicking "[Old Index]" on
	leads to
	which is a four-oh-four.


	Look for a source-changes mail from a month or three back for
	a pull-up request. Find that you cannot just go to the
	respective month as it used to be for ten years, but instead
	have to click through umpteen pages.

	While there, notice that links to the old index are frequently

	Yes, please.  While the new is visually
	more pleasing, important functionality has been lost.

 The mailing lists do have date-index mode.
