you have two possibilities:

IIRC, hypermail regenerates the index files when you add a mail. If you use the patched hypermail adding one message, you will get the haof files, too.

On the other hand, if you already have subdirectories which do not change, you can just generate the html index file block. Check: to see some example snipplet files (.blk) files.

One example for an haof file:

Two things to remember: the format is called haof (hypermail archive overview format). Due to a typo it is checked in as hoaf in hypermails CVS. :/

You need to install the xml.sax module for python before running .

ps.: I have send a copy of this mail to the list.
