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:


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:


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:
