[gnso-rpm-wg] Was there a 4 or 5 hour time delay on the mailing list?

Hi folks,

I just received, in a batch, approximately 10 emails from the mailing
list that were sent 5 hours ago....was there a mailing list technical
issue causing some delays, or perhaps it was just me? (although, my
email is handled by Google Apps, which is very reliable)

I looked at one of the email headers, and it seems the delay may have
been with an ICANN server:

--- start snippet from email headers --------
Received: from mm.icann.org (localhost [])
by mm.icann.org (Postfix) with ESMTP id 28FC361D8AC;
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:49:00 +0000 (UTC)
X-Original-To: gnso-rpm-wg at mm.icann.org

for <gnso-rpm-wg at mm.icann.org>; Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:22:06 +0000 (UTC)
--- end snippet from email headers --------

i.e. big gap from 16:22:06 +0000 (UTC) to 21:49:00 +0000 (UTC) within
ICANN's mailing servers (pechora1.icann.org and mm.icann.org).

I hope it's an issue that is only temporary, as the mailing list
becomes a less effective tool if there are large lags.
