The custom search I set up (http://goo.gl/gLGhEs) relies on Google site
searches, e.g.:


But it appears that Google stopped indexing the ADS-L archive toward the
end of September 2016, so it won't include anything later than that (at
least for now).

We had a previous gap in coverage, from April to August 2015, but the good
news is Google eventually got around to indexing that time period. So I'm
not sure if there's anything we can do other than wait for Google to pick
up the thread(s) again.
