Possibly an option to order the result by dates (like search in google groups).
This days I have been using Lucene ( a jakarta apache java library to
index and search documents). I haven't used it a lot but it's very
nice and easy. And I think that you can modify the score function to
put more score on newer messages using a date field when you index

Well, possibly a solution using lucene or your student aplication is
better than gname.
Or posibly not, I don't know how gname works.

For me is a very, very big problem. Expose emails is a lot of SPAM.
And Yahoo don't expose the emails if you are not logged and subscribed
to the list.
For example your mail is displayed <parrt at c...> when I am not logged.
I think that before putting the mailbox in some documentation archive
a little Perl script have to do some regexp work in the emails.

And I want to say, that the mailing list archive, will be very useful
for the newbies to antlr like me.
