What appears to have happened is that some upstream newsfeed was
re-injecting comp.lang.python, which the Mailman gateway dutifully
forwarded to python-list. This ended up swamping the python.org mail
system pretty badly; as of just now 09:24 EDT 27-Jun-2000, there are
still 50k+ messages in Postfix's outgoing queue.
Things are starting to clear up though.
