I haven't visited GMane in a few years, but I found it difficult to navigate.  
In particular, I found searching to be cumbersome.  Weren't the archives broken 
into 30-day blocks?

I just tried GMane again two minutes ago.  I can't confirm my recollections, 
but right now what I'm seeing is worse.  If you follow this link right now... 
(http://gmane.org/find.php?list=comp.lang.python)... you get this:

"Not all of Gmane is back yet - We're working hard to restore everything"

And if you follow the link labeled "The latest news is at Gmane News" at the 
bottom of that page, it takes you here... (http://home.gmane.org/)... and the top blog 
post discussing site repairs is dated September 2016!

I'm not too excited about trying GMane again after seeing that.

Please don't waste your time with the gmane website. Just point any (semi-)decent mail client like Thunderbird at news.gmane.org and you've access to hundreds of Python lists and thousands of other technical lists. I find the search facilities perfectly adequate.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
