Details

Through my interaction with W3C mailing lists, one particularly
useful feature is the Archived-At header they include in list email.
It provides you with a canonical URL to where the email has been
archived online.

One example from a recent email I sent:

> List-Id: ⁨<public-browser-tools-testing.w3.org>⁩
> Archived-At: ⁨<https://www.w3.org/mid/0DCE5D9A-E792-4D50-BAB4-80E4E88F9B2F@sny.no>

The Archived-At header lets one more easily reference email threads
in other contexts, such as in discussions and chat.  If f we would
include a similar header poiting to either Pipermail or Google
Groups (depending on what the list uses) it would take the stress
out of connecting an email you had previously sent to an HTML
document in another interface.

The Archived-At header is defined here:
https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-duerst-archived-at-08.html

Support for this header is in Mailman3 (not mailman2) and we have no plans of moving to mailman3.
