# We just noticed that the "other archives" link being put in the header of
# messages by 2b28 is not correct, and doesn't seem to respond to changes in
# either of 'hm_archives' or 'archives' variables. (Are there really supposed
# to be 2 of those, btw?)

There is no need for the hm_ prefix on any of the .hmrc directives. Daniel removed that need awhile back. Support was added back in so it would support variables with or without 'hm_' prefixes.

# The "Other archives" link in the indexes *is* being set, to the contents
# of the 'hm_archives' variable in our .hmrc file. It's getting set to a null
# string, which works as "back" in at least one browser I know, but I'd guess
# is in general undefined.

Ok. So I understand.... It is being set correctly for index pages but not on the individual message pages. Correct ? I'll take a look and see what's going on.
