Posting not working

I posted an article to gmane.science.mathematics.logic.coq.club through
Emacs Gnus a few hours ago, but it hasn't appeared either in Gmane or in the
mailing list archives.  (I am subscribed to the list, and have been
authorised by Gmane a couple of years ago to post to the list through Gmane.)

To test this, I posted to gmane.testing, but that message too hasn't
appeared in the Gmane archive for the group at http://news.gmane.org/gmane.test/

Until a few months ago, I was able to post (to other groups), and see the
articles immediately on the Gmane Web site.  Can someone tell me what the
problem now is?

Thanks and cheers,
Raghu.

gmane address filter is mixmaster-aware?

The group gmane.comp.bitcoin.payment.channels has a gmane-masked
posting address:

  List-Post: <mailto:bmc@...>

so when someone posts using mixmaster, the /From:/ address (which is
anonymous and generally recognized as an address that cannot deliver
replies) is replaced with:

  Jack Ryan <noreply@...>

It was a pleasant surprise to see that the gmane address is prefixed
with "noreply-..." (without it, a reader might expect the gmane
address for Jack Ryan to be forwarded to a meaningful address).

Is the gmane email address filter really smart enough to recognize a
mixmaster address and act accordingly?  Or is something else going on
here?

gmane.comp.db.tds.freetds non-public

Please mark gmane.comp.db.tds.freetds as non-public, since the list info
page <http://lists.ibiblio.org/mailman/listinfo/freetds> says:

>Messages sent by non-subscribers are silently discarded.

Thanks,

Is gmane.test working?

Today I posted several messages to gmane.test using
<escalera0 <at> gmail.com> address but none of them made it to the
list.  What's more, the newest article on Web archive is different
than one on NNTP.  I got authorization token on <escalera0 <at> gmail.com>
and followed the link.  What's going on?

https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/shotwell-list. What is the
policy for this move, should I subscribe the new list as
gmane.comp.gnome.apps.shotwell.new ?

gmane.comp.python.matplotlib.{devel, general} moving to new addresses

As evidenced by the message

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.matplotlib.devel/13645

the group gmane.comp.python.matplotlib.devel should be resubscribed at

https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/matplotlib-devel

and the group gmane.comp.python.matplotlib.general should be resubscribed at

https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/matplotlib-users

The new mailing list addresses are matplotlib-{devel,users} at
python.org. The announcement message indicates that the old lists will
remain active for some time, so gmane should not unsubscribe from the
old addresses yet.

The scm and buildbot lists appear to be defunct, but there is a new
matplotlib-announce list for low-level traffic. I'll ask the list owner
for permission and send a subscription request via the usual web page.

gmane.discuss dead?

I have been unable to submit articles via either NNTP or the web
interface.  Both of them show no articles since Jun 30.  I have
repeatedly attempted to post during the last few days but nothing
happens.

Appreciate an email reply if this gets through to
gmane-discuss <at> hawk.netfonds.no,

/* era */

If this were a real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.

IP blacklisted?

The NNTP server greets me with "Authorization needed", which means I guess 
I tripped the blacklisting trigger.

I ran a manual job yesterday which ended up attempting to fetch a rather 
large group (gmane.comp.python.general) for a while before I cancelled it.  
Rerunning with a cap of 1000 articles per group worked fine then.

I'm back to my regular configuration file again.  It has been running with 
no glitches nightly for several years.  I have slowly been adding groups 
to it, so that I presently fetch a good 100 groups (currently 104) once 
per night.

I was hoping the IP address 83.150.95.57 could be unbanned.  Thanks in 
advance.

And here I was boasting the other month how I had gone unbanned for years.

Please remove from blacklist

(I am sending this a second time because I don't see the message in the 
web view.  Sorry if this is a duplicate.)

I seem to have tripped the blacklisting threshold yesterday.  Could you 
please remove 83.150.95.57 from the blacklist?  Thanks.

I have a regular nightly job which has worked fine for many years.  I have 
been slowly adding groups to it; the current count is 104.

Yesterday, I ran a manual job with a custom configuration file, which 
ended up attempting to fetch all articles from a large group before I 
cancelled it.  Subsequently, fetching the 1,000 latest articles from the 
half-dozen groups I selected for that job worked fine, but now, as of last 
night, I get "480 Read access denied" when trying to enter a group, and 
"Authorization required" in the slrnpull log file.

The nightly job is now back to its regular configuration file.  My 
apologies for the clumsy manual job I did.

Please remove from blacklist

(This is the third time I attempt to post this, now via NNTP rather than
the web interface.  There seems to be a problem with the web interface,
too.  I'll post separately if this goes through.)

I seem to have tripped the blacklisting threshold.  Could you please
remove 83.150.95.57 from the blacklist?  Thanks.

I have a regular nightly job which has worked fine for many years.  I
have been slowly adding groups to it; the current count is 104.

The day before yesterday, I ran a manual job with a custom configuration
file, which ended up attempting to fetch all articles from a large group
before I cancelled it.  Subsequently, fetching the 1,000 latest articles
from the half-dozen groups I selected for that job worked fine, but now,
as of a couple of nights back, I get "480 Read access denied" when
trying to enter a group, and "Authorization required" in the slrnpull
log file.

Indeed, the block page http://gmane.org/denied.php shows a block notice
for this IP address.  Going back over statistics, I see two connections
per night (one to expire, the other to fetch) in the top-25 for many
days, but never really in the top tier.

(I have previously offered to compensate Gmane for the bandwidth via a
sponsorship arrangement with my employer, but Lars was not interested at
the time.  Perhaps this should be discussed again?)

The nightly job is now back to its regular configuration file.  My
apologies for the clumsy manual job I did.
