The service we use for mass email broadcasts had blocked our usage as
spam (you know how those C++ Boost posts look like phishing). This was
resolved yesterday morning. I believe the outage was about 12-hours.
Unfortunately, our monitors didn't pick this up. We are implementing
additional checks.

The mail infrastructures has been switched for months. The last time I
checked GMane it was working. Granted ... I don't check it very of
often. Perhaps we can add an automated check for that.

It looks like we need to update the contact pages for infrastructure.
