GNATS errors due to maintainance on

During some of the maintainance over the past 2 days, there have been
periods where GNATS' data files were not available to it, because they
are exported from hub.  The code does not deal with this gracefully.
In particular, gnats-admin@ has received about 2 dozen emails stating
that update operations failed.

What this means is that if you sent or replied to a PR during the past
48 hours (especially during the last 12), it is going to be up to you to
make sure that it actually made it into the database.  I have just finished
checking the queues and the spam filters and all are now clear.  There is
no recovery mechanism for anything that may have gotten lost during that
time, sorry.

If you are having problems with a specific PR, please email Ceri and I at
bugmaster at rather than replying to the list.

Thanks for your patience.
