Subject: NaN's in the date field of the mailing list archive
Has anybody else noticed that the mailing list archives have a bug
where the data is always displayed as "NaN-NaN-NaN (NaN:NaN)"? This is
visible on the main index page [1] and on any individual message page
(e.g., [2]), but not on the "Index by Dates" or "Index by Threads"
pages for individual months (e.g., [3,4]). This can be inconvenient
when you enter a thread via Google and attempt to derive some context
for it. It's also bad marketing (blatant user-visible bugs on OCaml's
flagship advocacy site). I don't know if this is coming from OCaml
code or some Javascript, PHP, whatever... It's definitely on the
server side, because the NaN strings appear in the HTML source.
