It might also be because the root nameservers at internic have
dropped debian, for as yet unknown (and undocumented) reasons.

What this means is that some people can't send to the list at the
moment (because that the information about where to find the
nameservers for debian.org has expired from the cache on whatever
machine is supplying name services for them).

Here's a message I sent to debian-devel about this:

Of course, you can work around this problem by temporarily putting
appropriate addresses in /etc/hosts (and setting up nsswitch.conf
appropriately).  It looks like (murphy) is the best
address to stick in /etc/hosts for lists.debian.org...  or, if
you're using qmail, put into /var/qmail/control/smtproutes:

Here's the current addresses of debian's name servers, if you want
to try using nslookup, etc.:

buoy.com        internet address =
ns2.cistron.nl  internet address =
miriam.fuller.edu       internet address =
ns1.waw.com     internet address =

Remember to clean out any hardwired gunk when internic's registration
comes back up.
