Did both on both list, so that should be OK.

Mmm yes that's a possibility. My concern wass that people suscribed to
lm-sensors but not lm-sensors-commit would then lack the original post
for that thread - but maybe that's better that not seeing the thread at

I've changed the lm-sensors-commit to work like that (or so I hope).

Correct. And I guess you can pick the few additional ones from your own
mbox? Not a big problem if a few posts are missing anyway.

Oh, while we're at it. The old archive has a whole lot of posts named
"Notification d'état de la distribution" (with "Undeliverable:" 0 or
more times in front). These are crap. Could you possibly delete them
before you push the old archive into Mailman? They're all grouped
