This week, we’re applying some patches and configuration changes to Tigris, to address the following problems:
- Large bursts of mail messages sometimes fail to make it into the lists. In the case where we figured this out, an automated test framework was checking in separate tests results for thousands of test cases; the commits worked, but the blurry of email didn’t all get into the list. There may be other cases when this is happening as well (unfortunately, it was not producing log file traces to allow us to confirm this positively).
- A Java Security Update will also be applied. So far as we can tell, none of the problems it fixes has ever happened (either by accident or with malice), but Security Patches are a sort of thing you do anyway, right?
