This link is automatically added by mailman even if there is no archive.
That's why for kdepim-users I have explicitly added the link to the
archive at marc.info. Also, I have recently activated archiving for
kdepim-users. Maybe the same should be done for kde-core-devel. (CC'ing

One problem was that lists.kde.org used to be an alias for marc.info.
That gave people, who, for whatever reason, wanted one of their messages
to be removed from the archive, the impression that the archive was
hosted by us. Since we cannot delete anything from marc.info and
therefore cannot comply with deletion requests, the alias was removed to
avoid confusion and potential legal problems.
