they're backed by a git repository which means that the entire archives
are offline...

... and therefore offline searchable by installing public-inbox locally
and using "git pull" on the inbox-repo.

right now, for example, that would be incredibly useful.  i'm using an
extremely unreliable 3G/4G-to-WIFI connection because the nearest cell
tower (quantity 1) is over the brow of a hill covered in trees, where
the weather (concentration of water molecules) adversely and directly
affects the signal.

> Would we migrate the current archives to the public inbox?

well, i'm kinda expecting that public-inbox simply regularly slurps
from mailman2's pipermail archives, so that it's just a matter of
"continuous constant migration"
