How come?

It separates the administration of list software from archiving
software.  This way, list software changes will not potential break
your archives.

Maybe use a approach advocated by
mharc, <>.

Specifically, to subscribe the archiver to the list and have MHonArc
process messages as a recipient


rather than with the -add?

No.  -add is needed when doing archive updates.  mharc uses -add since
it is more efficient than regenerating an archive each time.

I have
looked at mharc only very briefly this evening because I like the look
and feel of the MHonArc list archive and was interested in duplicating
it.  But another day perhaps.  :-)

The installation process is designed to make it quick to get things
going.  However, it does depend on other packages: procmail and namazu,
which the installation process checks for.  If using Linux, procmail
is generally installed by default, and there is generally packages
(RPM, deb, for Namazu.
