> Bug description:
> In creating the List-Archive: header, CookHeaders.py strips a trailing

> Consider a list's archive TOC page which has entries like the

> <tr>
> <td>March 2012:</td>
> <td>
> <A href="2012-March/thread.html">[ Thread ]</a>
> <A href="2012-March/subject.html">[ Subject ]</a>
> <A href="2012-March/author.html">[ Author ]</a>
> <A href="2012-March/date.html">[ Date ]</a>
> </td>
> <td><A href="2012-March.txt">[ Text 766 KB ]</a></td>
> </tr>

> If the base archive URL is http://www.example.com/private/listname/

> goes to http://www.example.com/private/listname instead, those
> relative hrefs become relative to private/ instead of
> private/listname/, and one gets 'no such list: 2012-march' errors (or
> 404 errors in the case of public 'pipermail' URLs).
