      Description

      When podlings graduate or private lists are made public, the name of the mailing list may change.
      This does not affect which mails are stored in the archive, but may affect Permalinks for the original list.

      For example, code-awards@apache was renamed to mentors@community
      So the link
      https://mail-search.apache.org/members/private-arch/code-awards/200506.mbox/%3c31cc3736050604103053254c80@mail.gmail.com%3e
      would become
      https://mail-search.apache.org/members/private-arch/community-mentors/200506.mbox/%3c31cc3736050604103053254c80@mail.gmail.com%3e

      Note that only the directory name under private-arch has changed.
      There may be some changes that are more extensive, e.g. if a list was accidentally created as private initially, the URL hostname will also change.

      For example:
      https://mail-search.apache.org/members/private-arch/olingo-user/201404.mbox/%3cCAOEBAJCj65fZt+F3uSN6MP2VqUBbMxPZ=D-YCDEkBZN1SS2szA@mail.gmail.com%3e
      is now at
      http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/olingo-user/201404.mbox/%3cCAOEBAJCj65fZt+F3uSN6MP2VqUBbMxPZ=D-YCDEkBZN1SS2szA@mail.gmail.com%3e

      At present, both links work, because the old directories on thor have not been tidied up.
      However for other changes that might not be the case.
      Also if the mbox files are restored from minotaur, the old copies no longer exist.

      So I think there need to be some form of redirection to handle the earlier links.

      The full lists of renamed directories is currently being established and will be added to this issue.
