Message-Id-based archive URLs are the best. GMANE used to support that, but GMANE is dead. mail-archive.com and public-inbox.org also support Message-Id-based archive URLs, and I think we could simply subscribe at least mail-archive.com's agent to the seabios list: https://www.mail-archive.com/faq.html#newlist Of course, it would be best if the list's own hosting provided the MID-based search / URLs too. ... Wait, am I dumb? Yeah, I'm dumb. Because, mail-archive.com is already subscribed to the seabios list: https://email@example.com/ https://firstname.lastname@example.org/info.html So, I'd suggest incorporating these links (as secondary archive URLs) into the wiki article as well. And, for example, here's a Message-ID based URL pointing to the initial message of the current thread: 20190108225218.GA13236@morn.lan">http://mid.mail-archive.com/20190108225218.GA13236@morn.lan Thanks!
