I'm sorry about that. The message about contacting the webmaster is
generic, and is not appropriate for mail.python.org. I'll fix that.

It works for me. Can you be specific about the time this occurred?

For the last 10 hours or so (from about 06:00 until 16:30 UTC) there was
a permissions issue in the error log. There is no traceback there, but
that may be because of the permissions.
