XML-DEV silent for days
02:06, 15 Feb 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Inboxes all over the world breathed a sigh of relief as the torrent of XML discussion on XML-DEV halted, apparently for network connectivity reasons.

After suffering one- to four-hour transmission delays last week, XML-DEV stopped sending and accepting messages around 20:00 UTC on Saturday.

Some messages arrived at approximately 05:00 UTC Tuesday, and messages continue to appear. It isn't yet clear if the earlier performance difficulties have passed.

Update: OASIS Executive Director Laura Walker said Tuesday that "OASIS is vigilant when it comes to the list. This involved network provider problems with connecting to the Internet backbone, and wasn't unique to OASIS." OASIS CTO Alan Hester described XML-DEV as "a vital mailing list" and was taking steps to correct the problems.
