I just tried to send a thank-you note to the Perl 5 porters, but I am not sure if it worked. How can I check it?

First I ran perlthanks on the command-line. After answering all kinds of questions and writing my note, it told me it has submitted the message, but as I don't have a running e-mail system on my machine, I am not sure if it worked at all.

Then I sent an e-mail to from my Gmail account.

I looked both at Perl 5 Porters mailing list archive and in the Perl 5 queue of RT. I could not find either of my submissions.

According to domm, they used to reach the Perl 5 porters list.

So I wonder. Have my attempts failed? Am I looking at the wrong place? Are they waiting in some other queue for someone to approve them manually? Do I need to send the thank you in some other way?

Shall I submit a bug-report complaining that thank-you does not work? :)


The one I e-mailed from Gmail has just showed up in the archive. (6 hours after I sent it). I don't know for sure, but I assume it was held for manual approval as moritz also suggested.
