lists.[non] is running Apache again :)

Personal ETA (posted by Sylvain Beucler, Thu 05 May 2005 07:45:36 AM UTC)

It is my guess that the outage shouldn't last more than a few days. The machine load was 14 on monday, it is now 7, things are getting better.

Unfortunately the Savannah hackers do not have full privileges on so I cannot be more precise (like studying the number of mails in the backlog) :/
