Temporary Debian mail outage

It would appear that debian.org rejected mail for maybe up to twelve hours
from late yesterday afternoon (Central timezone) to some time shortly after I
got up this morning. Things appear to be back to normal, so a big
Thanks to the mail admins.

If you happened to have sent me mail to my debian.org address during that time
period, you may have gotten a hard reject (‘550 Administrative prohibition’)
as did a test mail of mine. In this case mail may not be respooled, so please
do send it again.

My alternate address, formed by my first name followed by the family name and
the commercial top-level domain, remained functional as a fallback.
