My galago pro is acting weird. It runs for a few minutes, then the power
led starts blinking orange, and then it shuts down. The battery is
pretty much dead. But it was working fine on AC power. Any ideas what it
could be? Its 2.5 years old. I'm in India right now so I cannot set it
to system 76 for repairs.
I can prevent the shutdown by putting the laptop to sleep and waking it
up buy i have to keep doing it every other minute as the orange light
start blinking within 2 min.

So if you see this message, please reply so we can confirm the move to new server is successful.
Now you can go to https://lists.fsci.in to see the archives and even post directly from the web. Mailman 3 has much proved web interface.
Thanks also to Siddharth, Abhijith, Abhinav, Bady, Akhil, Anurag and probably more people who made this possible.

Sharing the news as FYI for those using CentOS as an RHEL compatible OS.
IBM/RHEL has changed the strategy for CentOS support (software) with
CentOS 8 (EOL 2021-12-31);
CentOS 7 support will not change till it's EOL in 2024-06-24 .
The gist of it. CentOS 8 will become "upstream" for RHEL and no
longer be based on RHEL source RPMs; break binary compatibility.
Read more here >> https://blog.centos.org/2020/12/future-is-centos-stream/
Many enterprises adopted CentOS because of it's binary compatibility
with RHEL and 3rd party software solutions.
Small companies, developers, and even big enterprises who are using
CentOS will have to rethink their Linux OS roadmap.
Here is an ArsTechnica article with alternates for RHEL compatibility.
