TL;DR: If you sent a mail to one of the openSUSE mailinglists yesterday
and it didn't arrive, please re-send it. Please also re-send any mail
you sent to admin(a)o.o or board(a)o.o yesterday.
As you probably noticed by observing the silence in your inbox, the
mailinglists were down yesterday.
This downtime which had two reasons:
a) postfix not starting on our outgoing mailserver after a kernel update
and reboot - one of the server's IPs wasn't configured fast enough on
boot and prevented starting postfix
b) our mailinglist software needing additional AppArmor permissions
after a kernel update. This is a known change for newer kernel
versions, but shouldn't happen as part of a kernel update, therefore
I opened https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1142120
The downtime started around 7:00 UTC (9:00 CEST). I noticed it in the
evening, and around 21:50 UTC (23:50 CEST) everything worked again.
a) wouldn't be too bad - the sending mailservers queues the mails, and
they "just" get delayed.
Unfortunately issue b) is more problematic - it seems the mailinglist
software failed with $? = 0 so postfix thought the mails were
successfully delivered, but in fact they are more or less lost. (Our
mailinglist admin found them in the incoming/ directory, but he's on
vacation with terrible internet access and probably can't do much about
this in the next days. Sending out the then-old mails when he's back
doesn't really make sense IMHO.)
Therefore: If you sent a mail to one of our mailinglists yesterday and
it didn't arrive, please re-send it. Please also re-send any mail you
sent to admin(a)o.o or board(a)o.o yesterday.
Should you ever feel lonely or be overwhelmed with spare time:
you know where to find us.
