#779 closed defect (fixed)

geos-commit list bounces back on every commit

Reported by: mloskot Owned by: strk
Priority: major Milestone: GEOS Fund Me
Component: Default Version: main
Severity: Unassigned Keywords: mailing list, infrastructure


With message, that I'm not allowed to post to geos-commit.

I have not:

  • subscribed to geos-commits
  • sent any messages to geos-commits,

but somehow my (?) messages are being rejected.

Please, how can I avoid being spammed with such bounces?

Owner: changed from geos-devel@… to strk

I guess we could:

(1) Set a "sender" that is different from the "From" field (2) Setup the mailing list to not bounce messages but put them in a moderation queue

I'd lean toward (2) but have not found how yet, with mailman.

NOTE: the message was sent to the geos-commit mailing list by OSGeo SVN on your behalf (via commit hook) -- see

Mat: for the time being I've subscribed you with mail deliver disabled, so you don't have the problem.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Ok I think I found it, was under "Privacy options -> Sender Filters"

Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined. (Details for generic_nonmember_action)

It was configured to "Reject", now changed to "Hold", so we (the administrators) get the notification, not the sender.

Still under the same "Sender Filters" there's the possibility to add trusted senders, so I can unsubscribe you back, if you want. Let me know if you prefer that.

As long as geos-commits does not spam my inbox, no need to change anything.

It will spam the list owners mailboxes from now on, for every commit of committers who did not subscribe to the list. The owner could then mark the committer as allowed to post.
