Plus, is that archive even available anymore?

I know that Gmane's web interface, at least, was taken down in 2016: (
https://lars.ingebrigtsen.no/2016/07/28/the-end-of-gmane/ ) and then
handed over to "Yomura Corporation" soon afterwards (
https://lars.ingebrigtsen.no/2016/09/06/gmane-alive/ ). But I haven't
so far been able to access
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.systems.archos.rockbox.general .

Example:

    $ NNTPSERVER='news://news.gmane.org'; lynx \
    'news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.systems.archos.rockbox.general'

    Connecting to NewsHost ...
    Looking up news.gmane.org
    Making NNTP connection to news.gmane.org
    Connecting to NewsHost ...
    Looking up news.gmane.org
    Making NNTP connection to news.gmane.org
    Alert!: Could not access news.gmane.org.
    Can't Access
    `news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.systems.archos.rockbox.general'
    Alert!: Unable to access document.

Is anyone else having this difficulty accessing rockbox mailing list
archives on Gmane, or is it just me (probably due to my own ignorance)?

Thanks,

Sam
