Well it appears that Hypermail is essentially dead. Even mlmmj-webarchiver, though claiming to be neither finished nor complete,
hasn't been updated in 3 years. That probably doesn't matter much for what we might need.
mlmmj-webarchiver relies heavily on MHonArc [https://www.mhonarc.org/] and, IMO, unnecessarily complicates things trying to
support Hypermail configurations (or for whatever reason).
Even without custom configuration, a bare-bones MHonArc install will create a usable, browseable web archive with one simple
mhonarc -outdir /srv/www/archive_dir /var/spool/mlmmj/list_name/archive
The existing browseable archive can be updated just as easily:
mhonarc -outdir /srv/www/archive_dir -add /var/spool/mlmmj/list_name/archive
"NOTE: MHonArc skips any messages that already exist in the archive. Therefore, MHonArc can be used to rescan a mail folder to
auto-find any new messages to add."
If that works for everyone, I guess I'll just have to be happy with that. :-)
