[PD] What's up with the mailing list archives and/or Google????

It seems the problem is indeed in the archive, regardless of Google.
I've just tried searching the archive directly, and the results are 
complete nonsense: not the usual nonsense (e.g. returning an unrelated 
message as a result just because the keyword appears in the "next 
message" title, for example) but complete junk.

Is anybody in the list involved in the maintenance of the mailing list 
and have any idea whether this is going to be fixed?
