It would be probably a good idea to put a link to
http://gmane.org/find.php?list=openjdk on the main mailing list page
at http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo and probably also a
corresponding link on the page of each list (e.g.
http://mail.openjdk.java.net/mailman/listinfo/discuss) for people
(like me) that didn't knew gmane.
Maybe a small input form with a "Search at gmane" button below the "To
see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the discuss
Archives"-line would be even more usefull?
