NewsRunner processes the 'news' queue and is responsible for delivery
from Mailman to the news group.

There is a cron called gate_news which is normally configured to run
every 5 minutes which gets the newsgroup postings and posts them to
Mailman. It seems that is not running.

Do other cron jobs run, e.g. the daily reminder of moderator requests
waiting, periodic digests, monthly password reminders, reminding and
ultimately deleting bouncing members?

If the other jobs are running, perhaps Mailman's crontab was edited and
the gate_news job removed. If the other jobs are not running, perhaps
Mailman's crontab was deleted or crond is not running.
