If this is about searching the Gmane newsgroup, that's no longer

I have a question: When I know there was a thread in emacs-dev, say, 1
year ago, that I want to revive, is there any way better than fetching
the last N thousands of messages from the server (/ o) and using text

How do others do this?  Is everybody cultivating his own private archive
of emacs-devel?
You can use `eww' to get the message-id:
M-x: eww https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/ RET
;; Do a search of some words related with the topic you are looking for.

Search emacs-devel using gnus

M-x eww-view-source RET

Now, you can call `gnus-summary-goto-article' with first arg
the message ID in I).


For short threads is OK, but for long threads,
sometimes is time consuming to get the right message id.
