A colleague has suggested something we can do ourselves: inserting links to the new message archive in prominent places. That way people can at least search the archives explicitly, and moreover, they should quickly be picked up by web crawlers in their new locations and once again be visible to Google searches.

There is no problem to change the Isabelle website at any time: its repository 
is separate from main Isabelle 

Whatever we do, we should have a good understanding of the situation and a 
good plan. (I did not yet look carefully at the new situation.)

As pointed out before, shortly before Christmas I was about to produce a new 
Mailing list archive for isabelle-users and isabelle-dev based on the great 
new technology of https://discuss.flarum.org

I got delayed by other projects and now we even have this "update" to the 
rather old-fashioned Sympa.
