The web archive is meant for read-only reference, there is no direct way
to reply. But this is a mailing list not a web forum, so it's not
supposed to work that way. Some alternatives:
- Subscribe to the list.
- Use gmane.
- Use nabble.
- When posting, mention that you are not subscribed and ask to be left
- Use the ezmlm email interface to have the message you want to reply to
sent to you (e.g. by sending a message to
- Use the web archive's "raw text" link to get an mbox copy that you
can import into your email program and reply to.
 This will not be a valid mbox format as addresses are munged. You
can undo this by hand or automatically by adding the skipmung parameter.
