A request for this was made at DConf (I think by Nicholas) and we're already 
doing it:

   https://www.digitalmars.com/NewsGroup.html

Just click on the items under the "Archive" column. It's all there, back to the 
first post. It's organized as one page per thread.

The web pages are created by this rather hackish and wretched program:

   https://github.com/DigitalMars/ngArchiver

I run it manually whenever I think of it, which is erratically, because I've 
tried repeatedly to set up a cron job to do it, but somehow it never runs. Bah.

Clearly, you're not yelling at it enough. ;) - Jonathan M Davis

Thanks for the links, Walter. I still think that we should make them easily available from either the website or the forums. I believe Mike already mentioned that during the AGM. Is there anybody already working on that? Is there any way in which we can help you in automating the process of archiving? Your time seems to be much too valuable to be taken up by things like this...

I don't know if there's anyone working on it, but PRs are welcome.

Thanks for the offer, but it doesn't really take up any time. I wrote the program long ago, and I just run the script to drive it now and then.

On the forum front page, in the right column, you will find an "Archive" link.

I wasn't at this year's DConf. Could you please explain what's lacking in the HTML pages generated by the forum software?
