No, your message came through the list to me just over 30 seconds after 
you sent it.  From the headers of the message in question that I received:

Your mailer says that you sent the message at this time:

The next header suggests that ben.nabble.com received it from 
lists.freedesktop.org in the same second (assuming all clocks were

Skipping a few headers, it was in my inbox 33 seconds later.

So I have a hunch your issue is with Nabble.com.  Nabble.com, as I 
understand it, is an aggregation site: it's not usually an "original 
source" of information.

When you write an email to any LO list, it get's posted immediately, 
modulo any filtering or intended delays.  Then, if the list 
administrator has set it up, you'll see it on the archives page, usually 
within a couple of hours.  Rest assured that just because your message 
has not yet shown up on the archives page, it *has* gone through.  To 
view the list archive, look in the header of any mail you received from 
it for the List-Archive: header.  In this case,

List-Archive: <http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice>

So, the "official" source for archives is actually 
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice, not Nabble.com, and I 
suggest that your issue is with the latter party, not the LibreOffice lists.

That's because nabble.com is not the source!  :-)


P.S.  It is for this exact reason that I *always* choose to receive my 
own mails to list.  If I don't get it back within a reasonable amount of 
time, I know that something has gone wrong.
