Sometime during the early morning on Saturday, May 31, a disk partition
on NetBSD.ORG's mail server ran out of space. The unfortunate result of
this was the loss of the following mailing lists:
I have restored the mailing lists to their state as of May 30, 01:00 EDT.
However, it is possible that a few subscribe/unsubscribes were overlooked
during the recovery process (the log file also happens to reside on
the partition that filled up).
I have taken some preventative measures in order to keep this from
happening again, and Core is currently exploring other options for
improving NetBSD.ORG's mail system.
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send them to:
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
