First of all, sorry for the extended outage of our mailing list and admin
  email; cardinal.lizella.net hosts those for us, and their colocation center
  decided to close their branch in the town where it was hosted (and forgot
  to let the owners know).  If DNS changes have propagated out to everyone
  by now, lists and mail should be back up.  We're still relaying mail through
  another host while we work on getting rDNS set up for us, but for the most
  part, everything is back to normal.  Again, apologies for the inconvenience,
  but it beyond our control.  With all that said, here are some updates...
