META: List Archives Revision

I have noticed the recent revision of the list archives.

I've been trying to keep my own index of posts to the list by copying
the list of posts under each entry at date00.html to a word-processing

I'm not complaining. I know this a high-volume list and I very much
appreciate the administration we have (thanks to David McFadzean).

I'm wondering though, is the archive going to continue building until it
gets too large again and stuff has to be taken off line; or, is the Web
archive going to start fresh with each month so that it's always only
the latest month's data on line? Is the older stuff truly off line or
just not available through the search interface?

Any comments you can provide on the strategy would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mark
