We seem to be back on line now, hopefully without too many obvious
problems to most of you. However, there is still a fair amount of chaos
behind the scenes. One of the known problems is that some, but not all,
postings are being referred to list owners (formerly known as list
admins) for approval. This means that after sending some messages will
take a while to appear on the list. I suggest you wait 24 hours before
resending or doing anything.
At the moment the archives only show messages from the new system, but
in time all messages from the old archive will be transferred across.
One definite improvement is that all listowners have now been put on a
listowners-announcements list to enable Rootsweb to announce maintenance
or other downtimes in advance. This is necessary because not all
listowners subscribe to the listowners list;
Hopefully all will be resolved soon.
For those that want to see some of the issues take a look at the
listowners list archives:
