I recently completed my review and analysis of the Nupedia e-mail list archives. Since they are no longer easily accessible, I thought I would share the raw archives: nupedia-l.tar.bz2. This HTML version of the e-mail archives was extracted from the Internet Archive via the following command:
wget --exclude-domains gizmology.net -e robots=off -nH --cut-dirs=3 --base=http://web.archive.org/web/20030822044803/http://www.nupedia.com/pipermail/nupedia-l/ -r -l 4 -N -k -p -R js -Gbase http://web.archive.org/web/20030822044803/http://www.nupedia.com/pipermail/nupedia-l/
I believe this archive contains additional textual processing subsequent to the `wget` to make it more useful to me.

Thanks for this. Very useful for Wikipedia history fans.
