No, those are usually software change logs.

Thank you.  I was able to say e.g. :LISTF AR1: and see the contents.
I can copy files into and out of existing archives.

However, I couldn't create new archives.  I tried various things, but
the closest got was a one-block archive file which only responded with
DEVICE NOT READY whichever way I tried to access it.
