Gmane offers a newsgroup interface to the mailing list

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.

You are certainly right about the gmane *Web Interface*. However, you can access their newsgroup interface through any newsgroup reader (including e.g. Thunderbird) and that's a really nice way of following things.
