The reason why delivery of your mails got delayed was because your
posts had HTML attachments in their contents.
All NetBSD mailing lists have a mail filter against any HTML attachment
to prevent flood of spams.  So, all HTML mails require explicit
approval by the mailing list maintainer.

Please configure your E-Mail program to disable HTML attachment for
postings to the NetBSD mailing lists, if possible.
For example, there should be a "Plain text" option between the Subject
line and the text area in the Gmail Web interface.
This configuration not only prevents the delay of the mail delivery,
but also reduces a load of my mailing list administration.

BTW, is there any mail which hasn't been delivered yet in
current-users mailing list?
If there is, please let me know via mails to

SODA Noriyuki, as a mailing list administrator of current-users
