Ruby-talk lag?

Has anyone been seeing high lag in getting ruby-talk mail? Today it’s
taking
several hours for mail to make it through the system, and I’ve heard
from
others they sometimes wait a half-day to see ruby-talk mail come around.
Anything that can be done?

I consistently see very little latency between when I send an email to
the
list and when I see it propagated back into my mailbox.

40 seconds. It took 40 seconds from when I sent this message to when
the
mailing list had propagated back to me.

It does seem to be sporadic. It’s usually very quick, though I have
noticed a few instances this week where it took 20 minutes or so for my
email to make the list.

I haven’t seen lags of more than about 11 minutes since I resubscribed
on the 25th – and six minutes of that might be due to the fact that my
email aggregation has a six-minute polling cycle. Still, five minutes
seems a bit long as a verified minimum time it took for a message to
deliver out of a three-day sample, all things considered.

Obviously this doesn’t apply if you are just posting to the list and
waiting to receive your message back, but part of the gateway
operation (the script that mirrors messages between newsgroup and
mailing list) is a cron job triggered every five minutes. So, if you
post to the newsgroup side and it takes five minutes or more to hit
the mailing list, this would be expected behavior.

It looks like it may be lag on a server in my return path; thanks for
the
numbers though, I’ll try to sort it out on my end.

I haven’t used the newsgroup side for either posting or receiving,
though.

FYI, I suspected it might be a DNS-related issue, and it turns out it
was:
one of the spam blackhole lists I was using appears to be having
trouble.
Ditched them, and things are fine now.
