Here's what the relevant sysadmin writes:

| Hmm.  It looks like the "Last message date" is UTC and the
| "Archived on" date is local (EST).
| A quick google reveals that this is a known problem:

| http://lists.lib.uchicago.edu/pipermail/testing/20010924/000010.html
| It looks like a bug was filed:

| But the mailman people just closed it, apparently without fixing it.
