[Mailman-Developers] Urgent: Duplicates with 2.0 final
Wed, 11 Apr 2001 23:35:21 -0400
Sorry for sending this to developers and users. I'm not sure which
group is more appropriate.
I've been using 2.0 final for a couple of months now without a
problem. I've got roughly 60,000 people on my mailing list and I'm
using sendmail as the MTA on RH6.2. The list is moderated and there
is only 1-2 messages a month. The last message sent to the list was
sent to some subscribers twice. I had seen the problem before with
2.0rc1. From the release notes for 2.0rc2, that is documented as
fixed (bug #117015) (see below). Anyone know why I would see it
happen again in 2.0 Final?
Here's what I've done:
(1) Scanned the Archives. Found a post to mailman-users with no reply
that seems related. http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2001-April/010625.html
(2) Looked through Syslog logs for System and Sendmail errors.
Nothing unusual reported.
(3) Looked through the Mailman logs dir (/home/mailman/logs). Nothing
out of the orinary except in the errors file (see below). What's
strange about this is the duplicate message had already been sent by
this time (the few duplicates checked showed 1st delivery at ~8PM
April 6 and subsequent delivery at ~2:30AM April 7 -- all times synced
with NTP on systems tested).
