This seems like it should be a stupid question, but...
Where does one get the list archives for freebsd-hackers or questions?
I took a look in the obvious places:,,,
mail index freebsd-hackers index freebsd-questions...

but no luck.  Someone care to enlighten me?

|Netscape expects the locale from X11R5.
|You apparently have X11R6.
|The /usr/lib/X11/nls was uuencoded and sent to the hackers/questions lists
|by me, three times now.
|You will find it in the list archives.
|The "kit" I put together, including someone elses patches to 1.1.5 to
|make it run there, is in one of these messages.
|Maybe it is also on
|Maybe Jordan has put it somewhere?
|The location of this thing should be in the FAQ under "NETSCAPE".
