Yes.

That was the old Majordomo archive, I did not copy it along
in the web server upgrade June 1 2009. All mail in that archive
is in the (now also old) Mailman (Pipermail) archive you refer to.

And also, all mail is in the new Ezmlm archive at e.g:
http://www.erlang.org/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi/4/6682

I have problems getting Google to index the Ezmlm
archive, so the Pipermail archive will be around
for a while.
