We recently had a catastrophic failure of the hypervisor running or Discourse VM, and had to restore from a previous backup. Huge props to the people who on that, it was trivial to restore the site.
My question is about the data lost in the intervening time. Many of my users have mailing list mode enabled, and as such have a complete archive of the lost data. Is it possible to import that data in some way? have some vague ideas about dumping the data to disk in appropriate maildir / mbox format and using the importers… thoughts?
