This is not good compared to others such as postgresql (or even
openoffice documentation) mailing lists.

The start of each digest mode message should include guidance such as:
"please change the subject to something more meaningful than "Re:
Digest of..."".

Is is impossible to use a web browser search function (ctrl f and ctrl
g) to navigate quickly to a message where the subject is of interest.
For example the digest mail user should be able to navigate directly
from the content list which includes "LibO roadmap" to the section of
the digest mode message containing that message.

This mailing list style also does not appear to show the standard mail
header information of each message.

Please consider change to make digest mode more convenient to the user.

Thank you.
