We could, in principle, import all of the developers list’s archives. That would require some work. The easiest way would be to simply break the current archives into chunks of maximum allowed length (would amount to roughly 10 chunks per year, I think) and post each chunk as a single post. This will not be pretty since it won’t be categorized, but I think it will be searchable.
Concern: people’s email addresses are there (in form of “developer at domain”), so we may need to clean that out first…
Other concerns? My biggest concern is that it is going to be messy (trying to import)…

- Importing developers list archives is crucial, even if it is messy and hard to do. I would not use the forum otherwise.
- Importing developers list archives is not crucial and I would use the forum anyway; important stuff will naturally emerge here at some point.
