Administrivia: Recent list delays

Dear subscribers,

I regret to inform those who have not noticed already that there have been
significant delays in distribution of Bugtraq traffic.  This was due
to severe problems that we have been having with lists.securityfocus.com
and our two outgoing mailservers.  It could not have come at a worse
possible time.  Of most significance was the announcement from Theo de
Raadt which was approved by me immediately after it hit my mailbox.
Unfortunately it took more than 24 hours to hit the list.  During the delay,
a small number of newer posts made it through due to prioritization
of delivery for new messages over those that have been deferred.

Please accept my apologies.  We have resolved the issues and the list is
returning to normal.  Throughout last night and today, posts approved some
time ago have been making their way to subscribers.  In the near future
we plan to allocate servers dedicated to Bugtraq and delivery to its
50,000+ subscribers.

If you have any comments or feedback, please do not hestitate to contact
me personally.


Dave Ahmad
