#4996 Fedora-Join mailing list cannot receive new mail
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by jflory7.

= Bug Description =
As of today, the Fedora-Join mailing list appears to be inaccessible (in that it cannot receive new mail). Any mail sent to this list immediately warrants an undelivered mail return from the mail daemon.

= Bug Analysis =
Perhaps related to the Mailman3 upgrade or yesterday's maintenance window?

= Fix Recommendation =
Unknown.


Thanks for your report, could you forward the whole server reply email to me at abompard (a) fedoraproject.org please?

OK, I think I found why. Mailman has "-join" suffixes to all list addresses to let people join the list. For example: devel-join@lists.fpo, packaging-join@lists.fpo, etc. I'm betting that Mailman is considering the fedora-join address to be a "-join" address for a "fedora" list that does not exist. I'll work on a fix.

OK I fixed it. The patch is waiting for upstream review but I have deployed it, because it's urgent.
