    Looks like the server switch didn't get the mail archive. Whoops!

    FWIW, I can't tell if the mailing list is broken or not. I've not actually received a posting from it since Saturday. It's not unheard of for traffic to be the low in that list, but it's a little suspicious.

    And it's back, and indeed Saturday is the last post on it still.

    Edit: And I still get certificate errors if I try to go to the list index page. Good stuff!

    I never cared about installing a certificate for the list :D
    Maybe I'll do that sometime :)

    The problem seems to be that the index page is on port 1717 and the certificate is only valid for the default https port (443). Even if I add the www. to the start of the hostname, I still get the certificate error, despite the hostname being the same as the link in the OP which works fine, so the only real difference at the cert level is the port number.

    If the mailing list can be made to run on a more standard port that's supported by your existing certificate, that might be the simplest fix, but I don't know GNU Mailman configuration at all well myself.

    I note I can't even get to the main page by switching to http but keeping the port 1717 designation. I guess the mailing list server running on that port doesn't support non-encrypted connections, or isn't configured to at least.

    Yes, he fixed it four days ago at least. Only the one page presents certificate errors in firefox, but you can work around that.
