This is running as a cronjob on the "old" hardware. I no longer have access
to disable it. I thought that the plan was to decommission that hardware, but
currently it seems to be doing zombie impressions, shuffling onwards, not
properly alive but not properly dead yet either...

This is true, in that it's pulling from git://
and nothing is moving there. As I noted in another e-mail, given this:

$ host is an alias for has address

to me it would seem that if the CNAME changed
(not something I control)
to point to a machine that plans to stick around
(not something I own)
which then runs the mirror that we currently have,

then everything would work.

Meanwhile, the cron on the new hardware is definitely running, as I see
that the local repository now has this commit:

    Rmv more deprecated characlassify/case change macros

    These were missed by 059703b088f44d5665f67fba0b9d80cad89085fd.

but mails it (tries to) send to the list vanish into the ether.
Not delivered, but not bouncing either. Whilst the same script "just works"
from the old hardware, no problems.

Mails the same script generates 24 hours earlier that are sent direct to
me from the new hardware arrive.

#11906 Look at the error message! Look at the error message!

implores Klortho, but I have no error message.
