Getting the current mailing list archives included in the search is a
good idea, but there seems to be couple of drawbacks with this link to
freefind. It does not index all pages (at least currently), i.e., it
does not find all messages. The search does not include messages from
the previously used archive. I do not agree with all "terms and
conditions" for the freefind search.

Based on the above mentioned reasons I'm not going to add this link.
However, I added the new mailing list archive to the mailing list search
at http://hostap.epitest.fi/.
