I suspect the problem is one of two things. Either Digest options ->
digest_send_periodic is set to No or Mailman's cron/senddigests is not
being run by cron.

I suspect that on or about December 16th, either someone changed the
list's digest_send_periodic setting or changed Mailman's crontab or
for some reason, the system's crond stopped running.
