When I used the URL you offered to the Gmane website, both the RSS feeds and the web interface links were as current as Gmane ever is. Furthermore when I also look at the link entitled "Original list archive", it too is also up-to-date. You seem to have managed to choose the only link on the entire Gmane r.general page that has an out-of-date archive. It appears to be a link that is under the control of neither Gmane nor R-help. What can I say?

Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I hit my hand with a hammer. Doctor: Then don't do that.
