Release of Spamcop Version 4.6.0-028


Recommended Posts

See main announcements at:-


"Emailed spam submissions will be accepted but will be queued for later handling. When the reporting service is brought back up please expect several hours of delay as the backlog is processed.

This outage does not affect the SpamCop/CESMail email service."

That's from Wednesday, August 19, 2009 - 0900 PDT, 1600 UTC/GMT, etc. for an estimated 8 hours initial downtime (then backlog).

[edit, clarification on downtime].

...If my math is correct (9 am start + 8 hours = 5 am completion), the upgrade is not expected to be completed for another hour or so, yet (it is now 6:55 pm EDT = 3:55 pm PDT).

...Yeah, I know, the web site is supposed to be down but isn't but maybe they found a way around having to bring it down while installing the upgrade .... :) <g>

Submitted six spams via the cut/paste into the web-form, full details mode selected.

After hitting the Submit button, three came back with a refreshed screen citing "unreported spam"

Following that link resulted in a "full technical details" parse result page stating that reports had already been sent.

Appearances are that the full database isn't quite in sync, updating fast enough, or there's too much time spent between servers talking to each other.

Parallel topic opened in http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=10560 based on the "unreported spam"-"reports already sent" sightings. Newsgroup discussion has gone quiet but I think your suggestion there that the processing server identity be noted and actioned by others whenever this occurs (if it continues) - for passing back to SC.

(Thinking out loud) That's the line that looks like

<!-- SpamCop::Web::Look $Revision: #13 $ produced by prod-sc-www1 -->
near the top of the page source for the parse. You go to your member page to review and release the queued report but if the resulting parse says "reports have already been sent for ..." in the reporting section (when you haven't sent such reports) then that is the page from which to "view source" and pick up the production server line. Is that right? Any subsequent looks at the parse may have been processed through a different server and may not show the same behavior.
