Bernard,

if you check on RevOnline, you'll see a mail list archive search  
plugin by mark, it provides you with nice results. Google DB seems  
bloated, too many garbage, I often need to do many refinements to  
find what I want, this is not google fault if I try to imagine the  
amount of info they are trying to index. Nor is runrev because runrev  
mantains no searchable list archives. You can also try the GMane  
interface here http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.ide.revolution.user
