Hi,

gnu-emacs-sources received a few hundred update notifications for ELPA
packages this morning, and in the web interface their latest version is
indeed dated 2024-Mar-31.

Glitch in the system, or is something nefarious going on?

Thanks,
-r

I am not quite sure, but one reason might have been the recent addition
of Atom feeds for package updates to elpa-admin.el, which have now been
generated for all packages.

ELPA update <do.not.reply@elpa.gnu.org> sent an erroneous email about
hyperdrive.el v0.3 to https://lists.sr.ht/~ushin/ushin 9 hours ago.

I'm also curious to know what the cause is.

Thanks!

Joseph

Somehow the process didn't handle all packages. For example the Vertico
ELPA page doesn't show an Atom feed yet. Also the manual is still not
updated to the new CSS style.

Considering the latest XZ tools happening, I was a bit worried when I got a
message about new release for Pabbrev, and I know I haven't updated anything,
but this explains it.

If that's what caused it, maybe in the future we can manually update
the time stamps after such a change, so that it does not trigger
announcements for individual packages.
