As I previously reported to gcc-bugs back in April, and still the case:

	The gcc list archives for January 1999
	( http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/1999-01n/ ) are broken.  Note the lack of any
	messages listed that month from before 20 January, and the inclusion of
	some messages from February 2000 and March 1998.

The strange dates may be due to broken clocks (perhaps regeneration
should list dates according to when the message arrived at the GCC
server instead of the Date header) and aren't that important, but the
lack of messages for much of January should be fixed.  (The FTP
archive for that month seems to have the same problem.)


If someone has a personal archive of the gcc/egcs list for that month,
use it to replace the missing messages.

For the strange dates, regenerate the old archives (again) using a
different source for the date in the index, if this can be done
without changing the URLs to the archived messages.
