My archived copies of the UCDavis and Merit ietf-ppp archives (January
1990 through October 2004) is here:

We switched to the servers in February 2004, so those last few
months aren't too helpful.

The ftp server is smart enough to make archives, so if you fetch
"ppp-archives.tar.gz" or "ppp-archives.tar.bz2", it'll do the right thing.

As a bonus, it includes May through October 1993 of the ppp-comp list.
I don't know if more of those exist somewhere else.

The IETF archives seem to overlap some of this history and (of course)
include the bits since 2004:

I haven't looked into it to try to figure out why the file sizes are so
different.  I don't know where the pre-2004 files in the IETF archives
came from, but mine were downloaded from Merit before they shut the
servers down.
