Subversion moved to Apache in 2009. Neither lists.a.o nor
mail-archives.a.o would be expected to go farther back than that.

Before the migration, the lists were @subversion.tigris.org (except
private@, which was svn-full-committers_at_red-bean.com), and instead of
being part of ASF we had our own Subversion Corporation
(see https://svn.haxx.se/org/, and the archive.org snapshots of
subversion.org). The tigris lists used to be independently archived in
several places, but at least two of them (tigris and gmane) have closed
since then.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to download haxx.se's archives to Apache
hardware so we have an independent backup. In fact, Infra might even
be willing to inject the pre-migration data into the
mail-archives.a.o/lists.a.o archives, so we have unified archives.

[When we migrated legal@ allowed us to add the historical release
tarballs to archive.a.o/dist/ even though they contained LGPL
dependency tarballs (which aren't normally allowed in Apache
releases). In light of this, I can't imagine backfilling the lists
would be a problem.]

The first step, though, would be to get the raw mbox's from haxx.se.
The owner of that domain is a full committer, so it should be easy…

Cheers,

Daniel
