    As per our mailing list import instructions, this needs to be in your project's Home Directory on our servers.

    Let me know when that's done, with the full path to that file.

    Also, for good measure, please refer to the mailing list to import by the full mailing list name.

    This should be in your project's home directory (ie., as per our documentation, /home/project-web/lensfun/ ), not in the htdocs folder. By putting it in the htdocs folder, you've made this mbox public (including your users email addresses) which we don't want.

  • When you import the mbox file, please discard any existing posting in this list. If it is necessary for that to discard further mailing list data (subscribers, Mailman configuration), please do so.

  • Is still something missing or wrong, or simply hasn't there been the time for it yet?

     
  • Would it make things easier for you if I deleted the mailing list and created a fresh one?

     
  • What is the time frame for the import that we have to calculate with? The Lensfun project needs a working mailing list again. The outage has been one month now. If you cannot do it, that's okay, there are other hosts, but we need to know.

    Apologies for the delay, this import has been completed.

  • I don't see any change: The message still have the old (wrong) timestamps. In particular, 200 messages are of April 9th, but in the mbox file, no message is of this date. Is the archive simply not yet updated?

     
  • It still is not updated.

     
  • Don't do anything in this regard anymore. In the meantime, so many postings have hit the mailing list, that we would lose too much data.

    I must say that I am irritated by this procedure.
