Yes, the links changed because the entire architecture changed.
I kept pipermail as a read-only copy so old links into the archive keep working (as far
as possible: pipermail links are notoriously unreliable).

It seems that mailman3 allows multiple message archive systems, with hyperkitty being the
only one supported right now.
A pipermail-style backend that creates a plain html archive would certainly be a welcome
addition, as Laszlo definitely isn't the only "dinosaur" (I'd propose
some changes though: for example basing the URL on the hashed message-id, like hyperkitty
does, instead of pipermail's plain counter, improves URL stability), but I'm not
sure if my python-fu is up to the levels to quickly build something like that.
Once it exists, I'll happily integrate it, though.
Message-Id-based archive URLs are the best. GMANE used to support that,
but GMANE is dead. mail-archive.com
Message-Id-based archive URLs, and I think we could simply subscribe at
least mail-archive.com's agent to the seabios list:
Of course, it would be best if the list's own hosting provided the
MID-based search / URLs too.
... Wait, am I dumb? Yeah, I'm dumb. Because, mail-archive.com
already subscribed to the seabios list:
So, I'd suggest incorporating these links (as secondary archive URLs)
into the wiki article as well.
And, for example, here's a Message-ID based URL pointing to the initial
message of the current thread:
