The context variable that archive_index uses for the list of objects differs from the other date_based generic views, such as archive_month, archive_day, archive_year and object_list. Archive_index uses 'latest' as its context variable while the others archive_month, archive_year et cetera use 'object_list' for their context variables.
It would be much easier if they all had the same context variable so you could use a for loop in a base-template for all of the different generic views.
