I assume that you're referring to the digests, which number the messages in
the table of contents but don't number the corresponding messages in their
order below. I think that the digests will be arranged as you would prefer
when we switch soon to the MailMan software, but I think there will be both
plus and minus aspects to the switch-over. What I'm personally hoping for
most is stability, but Jonathan indicates that we'll have automatic
archiving of messages, and that's certainly a good thing.

If you really want to skip messages that you think you won't be interested
in, an alternative is to read the messages at the web-site where you can
see all the more recent messages listed from the top and click on whichever
one you're interested in.
