Delay is getting worse...

I unsubscribed my address and resubscribed a few minutes
later, and now both my and messages show up within
a few minutes of each other instead of a 90+ minute delay.

I guess the mailing list software processes the addresses in typical
"first-in-last-out" stack order instead of a FIFO queue or ordered by
domain name or whatever.

Lesson learned: if you've been on the list for a while and don't like
the delay, unsubscribe and resubscribe. /shrug
