Default Warning: Email bounces from Saturday August 16th until Tuesday August 19th 2008

Brief explanation:
For a number of addresses @fedoraproject.org there were windows when
those email addresses would have bounced reporting that the address did
not exist. This happened as a result of the re-installation of the mail
forwarding server. Please check all mailing list subscriptions to make
sure you have not been inadvertently unsubscribed or disabled due to
this error.


Gory Details:
During it's re-installation the postfix mail server was installed but
it was not configured in the alternatives system so that
its /usr/bin/newaliases command was the one being run. As a result
sendmail's newaliases command was being run and it was changing the
permissions of the aliases file such that postfix could not read it. It
did not get noticed until Tuesday due to other issues taking precedence.
The alias-generation would run once every 30 minutes. Breaking the
aliases. Then our configuration management system would run on a
slightly out-of-pace schedule with the aliases and correct the
permissions.

This problem has been corrected, sorry for the inconvenience.
