I've had Yahoo groups stop sending emails before, but I thought at the time
that it was due to something odd with the email host (was a Brazilian ISP
account). I'm not sure though.

Since I'm using a Gmail account for the Yahoo groups, I never had trouble

Well, I asked Tony about the whole setup around support.cvsgui at
news.cvsnt.org and what the fact that Yahoo groups stopped sending messages
had to do with the problem. At that point I didn't know that the mailing
list was based on a Yahoo group.

Are you /really/ sure you're reading the support.cvsgui messages through
news.cvsnt.org? Seems strange, with Tony saying he shut it down, and Bo,
Glen and me not being able to read it at all (getting the same "no such
group" message). Just to be sure, maybe look at the headers of a cvsgui
message you're receiving.
