I'm to blame for that. There are some long-standing (ahem, 10+ years)
bugs in pipermail where pipermail garbles mails. So before pushing out
news, I run arch --wipe to recreate the archives to at least arrive at
a stable state so that URLs to old mails don't change. Mails are still
garbled etc. It's messy, but I prefer stable URLs.
