Re: [scl.org] IP address range for firewall config?

The IP change was made as part of fixing the issues we had two weeks back. Sorry for the troubles, at least I was not aware of that this might be important.

We're now working on making the site more stable and it will mean one another move once we have it prepared, configured and tested. We'll try to make sure we let people know about the upcoming change ahead of time. Will one week notice on this mailing list be fine?

I'm trying to use some of the software collections at

machines to access the IP address, which used to be the
address of softwarecollections.org, but it appears that it has recently
moved to AWS hosting, and softwarecollections.org is currently resolving
to ... at least for the moment, from here.  Is this
permanent?  Can you tell me what range of addresses we now actually need
to allow in order to be assured our machines can get to
softwarecollections.org?  Any thoughts of possibly providing a single,
fixed front-end IP for downloads from firewalled machines? Also, it
would be helpful if such details were documented on the
softwarecollections.org website.

One other thing:  On the page
https://www.softwarecollections.org/en/about/, under "Who Runs
SoftwareCollections.org?" it says:

If you have any questions about the site, its content, or software
hosted here, please contact
<mailto:admin softwarecollections org>admin softwarecollections org

Email to that address fails, "User unknown."

Yeah, I guess this mail should be used only for internal admin messages and we should change this suggestion to this mailing list.
