Sorry for our delayed report on restart operation on ruby-lang.org mailing list service. We should account current management of the lists orderly.
As reported, we found someone’s crack against helium.ruby-lang.org and immediately stopped various services provided on the site, including mailing list service. We then surveyed mailing system (fml and related tools) and configuration files for each lists, and found them credible: they don’t have any sign of tampering.
Our confirmation however does not totally cover the contents of the messages posted on the lists before, or archived on helium.ruby-lang.org, and member lists of the lists.
Based on the fact, and considering the meaning of the list (as a medium for communication), we at first filled users’ convenience. If you are reading this mail and are not a member of this ‘ruby-foo’ mailing list, feel free to contact its administrator <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Other inquiries on the list may well accepted via the above address. Inquiries not related to mailing list shall be referred to the other address: <email@example.com>.
A series of announcements, past and future, will continue on http://www.ruby-lang.org. Sorry for some time inconvenient.
