Hello,
I'm one of the admins of the quantlib project. We're thinking of retiring our (very low-traffic) dev list and just post on our user list. Is there a way (either for us or for you) to merge the archives of the two lists, so that we can delete the unused one and at the same time preserve its past history for searches?

Thanks,
Luigi Ballabio

    It is not possible to merge the archives, but perhaps it would make the most sense to just disable posting to one list and leave the archives available.

    I'm not sure what settings you'll want exactly, but the instructions we provide for an "Announcements Only" list may be a good start: https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/documentation/Mailing%20Lists/#making-an-announcements-only-list

    Thanks, I'll do that.
