I just did. Master's exim configuration has been changed today [1]. DSA
probably tried to improve the configuration since master.d.o has been
suffering from overload recently.

The check for the X-PTS-Approved header has been hardwired in exim4.conf
but the check is more strict that the one I used to have: I would only
require the header when sending mail to <package>@packages.qa.debian.org
and *not* when sending mails to <package>_<keyword>@packages.qa.debian.org
since those emails are not advertised and not (yet) spammed.

Dear admins, any chance to implement the same (looser) check in exim4.conf
instead of the current one?

In the mean time, anyone who is affected by this change should just add
the required header.


[1] I've found this in master's /etc/exim4/exim4.conf (which has been modified today):
#!!# ACL that is used after the DATA command
  require verify = header_syntax

  deny    hosts  = !+debianhosts
          condition = ${if match{$recipients}{@packages.qa.debian.org}{${if def:h_X-PTS-Approved:{false}{true}}}{false}}
          message   = messages to the PTS require an X-PTS-Approved header
