[opensuse-project] Mailinglist outage yesterday
Hello,

(sorry for the massive cross-post - if you answer, please reply only on
one mailinglist)


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@o.o or board@o.o yesterday.


Longer version:

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@o.o or board@o.o yesterday.


Regards,

Christian Boltz
