I find the logic of these "test - please disregard" emails weird..
You definitely want list-owners attention, perhaps Postmasters...

If somebody doesn't receive email from vger's linux-kernel for
few HOURS, there is either something wrong in the systems(*), or
the recipient has been removed for some reason.

*) "systems" include vger itself (it has died this week alone 4-5 times),
network connectivity from vger to you, and your local email systems.

If answers, vger *is* operational, and
its email system should be operational too -- or then myself or DaveM
are just doing something to it.

The case at hand:

A burst of rejections from your service ISP:

May 7 18:42:54 vger smtp[2973]: S136669AbREGV1F:
to=<>, delay=01:15:49, xdelay=00:10:03, mailer=smtp, ([|25||4643]),
stat=error2 550 5.1.1 <>... User unknown
May 7 18:45:22 vger smtp[2973]: S136668AbREGU70:
to=<>, delay=01:45:56, xdelay=00:02:28, mailer=smtp, ([|25||4643]),
stat=deferred remote hung up on us while 1 responses missing

I could bet that the beast did run out of some critical resources, and
it shows the result like this. It *really* sucks...

Of course the linux-kernel-owner receives *only* the "stat=error*" cases;
you could say "distilled bad news" -- even if only one or two failure
cases out hundreds of successfull, we may still think that the address
just became nonexistent...
