I have received several notices that messages posted in are not getting propagated to Google Groups. I have also verified this to be the case.

Here is the posting from David Ross:
It appears that Google Groups stopped updating from all NNTP servers on
1 August 2011.  This was noted by a member of the Big8 Management Board
regarding discussions on Usenet servers in the news.groups.proposals
newsgroup.  He communicated this via E-mail to the other members of the
Big8 Management Board (which includes me).  I then started checking
various newsgroups, both Usenet and and confirmed that
there are no Google Groups messages after 1 August.


NOTE:  Kathleen's message posted 2 August in this newsgroup does NOT appear in Google Groups
as of today, 7 August 2011.  No messages from the unmoderated dated in the past 6 days appears in Google
Groups despite the fact that Google's description of Google Groups
claims that messages for unmoderated newsgroups should appear within

justdave reported in bug 598060 comment 117 that he has now a direct contact with the Google Groups unit, so he should be able to contact them to check what is happening.
This is pretty serious. justdave: can you talk to your contacts and see what's going on?

Severity: normal → critical

It has apparently been resolved yesterday, for all concerned groups, I can now see on Kathleen's message from yesterday about delaying the SHECA discussion 

(this was not impacting only mozilla.*, I've seen some other newsgroups that also had the problem, so it was a general Google Groups issue that was resolved globally yesterday)
