For starters, I've grabbed a copy from haxx.se and mirrored it to
svn-qavm.apache.org and home.apache.org.¹

I've opened an INFRA ticket for importing the dev@ and users@ archives:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/INFRA/issues/INFRA-20213

Questions for us:

- TODO: Double check that there are no messages to
  *@subversion.tigris.org in https://svn.haxx.se/dev/ and
  https://svn.haxx.se/users/ in or after January 2011.

- TODO: The archives for 200911, 200912, and possibly a few subsequent
  months contain messages to both the @s.t.o and @s.a.o mailing lists,
  so there's a question of deduplication (how to remove @s.a.o messages
  from the svn.haxx.se dataset before importing it).

- Do we want to import the https://svn.haxx.se/org/ archives as well?

- Do we want to import the archives of svn-full-committers@? (I guess
  not?)

- And #svn-dev (the colabti.org channel logs)?

The archives of svnsecurity@ and security_at_s.t.o are already in the PMC
repository, and I believe they are complete. (I checked that the last
message in the mbox file in /repos/private and the last message in my
personal email archives match, and they do, modulo spam received
afterwards.)

Cheers,

Daniel
