Hi Tim,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I've been getting hammered by spam so tried a few things, rDNS checks 
being one of them. Unfortunately, the mail server checks the rDNS for 
the host (mail.pearsoncomputing.net), the domain alone is not sufficient 
( See results from 'mxtoolbox.com' - Your Reverse DNS Record (PTR) is 
not a valid host name. According to email sending best practices, a PTR 
Record should be a valid host name. If the PTR Record is not a valid 
hostname, there is a likelihood that you will experience email delivery 
issues with anti-spam services.)

I added an exception for pearsoncomputing.net but the rDNS check was 
rejecting other valid mail too so I've removed it.

Understood.

Thanks, I read this message in the archive before I started receiving 
list messages and I've started to clone Slávek's mirror. Though he did 
mention in his reply about a complication regarding the submodules.

I don't see any SCM files in the monolithic tar ball.

It does, very much, thanks.
