The Geeklog mailing lists[*1] are back up now, after a hiatus that lasted slightly longer than planned. Some problems with the mailing list archives still have to be worked out, but at least they're up again and can be used.
One important change in configuration is that posts from non-subscribers are silently discarded now. Sorry about that, but the amount of spam attempts we get on the mailing lists has just completely gotten out of hand.
So when you post to the mailing lists, please make sure that you're posting from the address you used when you signed up with the list. The geeklog-security mailing list for reporting security issues is, of course, exempted from this change.
There's also a new mailing list, geeklog-spam[*2] , devoted to discussions on how to fight comment spam and other forms of spam that affect Geeklog sites. I'm probably going to post most of my spam warnings there, too, and reserve the spam topic[*3] for major outbreaks and important issues.
