Those of you on xml-dev or in attendance at XML 2007 may already know 
about MarkMail.  It's a web site for interacting with email archives, 
built on XML and XQuery.  We launched about 6 weeks ago with 4,000,000 
messages from the Apache Software Foundation and have been expanding to 
other communities since.

I'm happy to announce that we now have "xmlschema-dev" in the archive. 
The history goes all the way back to the first message.  You can see it 
here:

http://xmlschema-dev.markmail.org

As you'll see with the chart on the home page, one of our goals with the 
site has been to focus heavily on analytics.  We have lots of graphs and 
counts.  Every query you write gets its own histogram chart.

Another goal has been interactivity.  Every search result screen gives 
you lots of ways to refine your search (by sender, list, attachment 
type, etc).  Plus we did a lot with keyboard shortcuts. You can hit "n" 
and "p" to move to the next and previous result and "j" and "k" to move 
up and down the thread view.  There's a lot of little things like this. 
Plus if your result message includes Office or PDF files they're in-line 
interactive too.

The subdomain you use implicitly limits the messages you search.  Thus 
http://xmlschema-dev.markmail.org searches only lists with 
"xmlschema-dev" in their name (a single list).

You can search all Apache lists at http://apache.markmail.org, all 
Apache Axis lists at http://axis.markmail.org, or across all lists at 
http://markmail.org.  You can always limit your search view using a 
"list:<somename>" constraint in your query, but using the domain handles 
that a bit more elegantly.

I hope you all find this useful!  More info about our use of XML is in 
the FAQ (http://markmail.org/docs/faq.xqy).

Notes on using the site:

* Search using keywords as well as from:, subject:, extension:, and 
list: constraints

* The GUI doesn't yet expose it, but you can negate any search item, 
like -subject:soap

* You can sort results by date by adding order:date-forward or 
order:date-backward to your query

* Remember to use "n" and "p" keyboard shortcuts to navigate the search 
results

* You're going to want JavaScript enabled
