The message I posted yesterday with the headers below did not make it to Google Groups (see the URL in the URL field of this bug).  Since some piece of the community primarily reads news through Google Groups, it would seem worthwhile to try and verify that this was the only one that got lost and/or understand why it got lost, in order to ensure that it's not part of a bigger problem.

Google has listed as moderated currently (but doesn't), which means posts to that group won't show up on Google unless they were posted via Google or our mail gateway.  This was a temporary anti-spam measure because the newsgroup was getting slammed with massive amounts of spam being posted via Google.  See bug 425122 for details.

This change has been reverted (planned to do it last night, but I didn't get it in before Google polled our config).  Google should pick it up around midnight PDT tonight.

The message that didn't go through we're probably not going to be able to recover, however, I'd appreciate if you could try to reproduce the same scenario and let me know if it's working any better today after last night's config changes.
Was that change only made to dev.apps.seamonkey? I still don't see any archiving of, and I'm still getting mod requests from Google posts for the support groups.
er, I changed the setting in mailman and forgot I'd initially hacked the script that generated the file google pulls.  Just undid that hack, they poll in an hour and 20 minutes, so we'll know soon enough.
I'm assuming this is correct now also, the settings changes on the 18th should have fixed it.  If not, please reopen.
