Eric, I don't think the is under any control of the podling PPMC at this
point.  Are you talking about the forum, a wiki, lists, or something else that can be spammed?

I notice that the archives for <> seem to
have disappeared.  Is that normal?  Also, does anyone know how to reach kenaiadmin?  The link
is bad.  Maybe Louis Suárez-Potts knows?  

I see on the lists here, <>, that there are very
few recent posts, but there is some sort of auto-responder at that
is making repeated list responses to recent posts (usually multiples of 3).  While annoying,
they don't appear to be spam as such.  Is that what you are trying to correct?

We have test sites of the wiki and forums in preparation for cut-over onto Apache infrastructure.
 Those are not the live system that is being spammed.  It may be weeks before we cut over
the live sites.

Who already has administrative rights there that can grant them to you so you can contribute
to cleaning things up?  It seems you should contact one of those people directly.

 - Dennis

I will answer this question as soon as I'll have one answer to mine :

The fr project is currently spammed, and NOBODY can fix that (thanks  
to Fred Diaz (one of the volunteers) who confirmed wht happens on the  
fr lists).
What happens, is a disaster for image on the fr side,  
but looks like nobody cares ...

As (temporarly) volunteer, I asked for my rights granted in the fr  
project, because this is mandatory to solve the issue (maybe some  
other to come). In meantime, other fr people confirmed they are  
volunteers to help.

If we miss the train, they never will show up.

And I insist : maintain the French community, to be able to explain  
the remaining people, explain what happens with Apache, is more  
urgent IMHO, than build (it took me only several hours  
to provide a working set on Mac OS X).

Thanks in advance,
