(2004-02-09) Mailing list problems?


(Gavin Sinclair) #1

I’m getting hundreds of old (but recent) ML/NG messages. I don’t think
I’m getting any new ones. What on earth is going on? Does the gateway
software use continuations or something? ;>

Uggh! 457 new ruby talk messages this morning.

Is somebody working on this?

eban stopped the torrent. Thank you very very much.

We must prevent the similar incident. We should move ruby-talk ML
to members only (not allow posting via comp.lang.ruby gateway)
next time.

I checked the newsgroup yesterday, and I got near 80 msgs this
morning. Seems normal to me.

We are talking about the mailing list, rather than the newsgroup. I read all
my mail before geing to sleep last night, and this morning had 457 odd new
ruby messages, almost all are repeats of previous messages.

I assume something bad happened/is happening with the newsgroup<->mailing list
gateway

Your Assumption is right. I checked the logs, and it seems that the News -> Mail Job
lost track of the Xref’s it had already seen several times.

I’m digging in the code atm (thanks god it’s written in Ruby), and I hope it’ll be
fixed soon.

Kind regards,

In the meantime, people using mutt can delete the duplicates with
T~= ;d

I just found out :).

Ok, the problem now seems to be permanently fixed after I found the error.
Sadly the script ran amok 1h ago and resent duplicates of ~50 mails.
Sorry for that.

Kind regards,
