A few updates on the general issues related to bouncing:
1. We worked with Mailman developers to improve the bounce parsing so
it's less likely miss-process a bounce message. This might help in a few
cases where list owners were getting unsubscribed. This was deployed a
few hours ago. <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T285120>
2. We're looking into enabling "verp probes". If an address hits the
bounce score, Mailman will send them a dedicated email, and if *that*
mail bounces, then they get unsubscribed. This will prevent getting
unsubscribed when spam/viruses go to the -owner address and are bounced.
3. We're discussing with upstream about just disabling bounce processing
of the -owner address altogether.
If you're still running into bouncing issues or other issues please let
us know and we'll look into them.
My subscription of one the mailing lists I'm subscribed to was disabled due to a bounce score. Afaics I was the only one. But there is nothing wrong with my email, and this was also the only mailing list I got this message. Right now I enabled it again, but two questions:
* Are the bounce settings perhaps not correct? Right now it is: bounce score treshold = 20, bounce info stale after = 7d, bounce disabled warnings interval = 7d, bounce disable warnings = 3
* In the previous version of mailman I could easily see a long list of all subscriptions and which email was enabled/not enabled etc. In this new version I don't see this. Is there a way to make this visible or is this simply not possible?

Trijnstel <trijnstel(a)hotmail.com>'s subscription has been disabled on checkuser-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org due to their bounce score
exceeding the mailing list's bounce_score_threshold.
This is a request for listadmin guru help.
I noticed this month that I get automated monthly reminders about the
wikimediahk list, but when I click on the link to manage the settings it
goes to a 404 error page. The mailing list itself has been unused for a few
years due to the abolition of the original Wikimedia Hong Kong.
I've been asked by the new Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong if they could
revive the mailing list (or start a new one). What's the best course of

In the previous mailman version you could write a name to an email address so that it was easy to find which user was connected to which email. In this new version I haven't found this feature yet. Does it exist? And if not: is there a possibility to add it?
As part of the transition, I had the mediawiki-distributors list disabled.
Now, I'm getting these notifications, but I do not have any way to do anything about them.
