Hmm...so do I, for what it's worth.

Someone with appropriate access could check the Mailman logfiles and see what 
was going on, although it's not clear that there is anything unusual going 
on-- transient failures from DNS lookups or the like can happen, particularly 
given the volume freebsd.org's mail server must deal with.

I've also seen occasional hiccups in list volume where no traffic is sent for 
a day or so, but Mailman seems to get stuck processing its queue of unsent 
messages every once in a blue moon for me, too.

Anyway, try asking <postmaster at freebsd.org> and/or the list admin for this 
list (listed in the headers, probably) if you want to pursue your questions
