The easiest solution would probably be a Google customised search. 

If you prefer a solution which also protects users' privacy you might like to contact the MetaGer team located at Hannover. They also offer customised searches. MetGer already provides such a service for Universities.

You could include all TeX-related mailinglist (and usenet and even web forums) archives which I think would be a good thing. Restricting search results should work with an advanced search interface.
