That also happened about 2 years ago.

The announcements are transferred from the mailing-list to the newsgroup by a mail-news-gateway. That time the newsserver configured there was down. Maybe it's the same problem now.

As you can see the announcements can be seen here again.

I contacted CTAN and suggested to use a different newsserver for the mail-news-gateway as the one used until now (news2.open-news-network.org) is currently down. This is the answer from Erik Braun from CTAN:

"Sorry for the late response, I was away for a few days. Now
news6.open-news-network.org is used. Please let us know if there
are problems again."

I'm not on StackExchange, so I can't answer there.

Many thanks to Erik Braun/the CTAN Team and to Holger Schieferdecker.

I just informed on TeX LaTeX Stack Exchange about the state of things,
quoting and linking to the message I'm responding to.

The message on TeX-LaTeX StackExchange is available at the URL
https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/646224/118714

Seems the mail-newsgateway for forwarding CTAN announcements from the
mailing list to comp.text.tex is down again.

The last CTAN announcement I received via comp.text.tex dates back to
June 12, 2022:

while the latest CTAN announcement displayed at https://ctan.org/ctan-ann
is from June 16, 2022:

Unfortunately I don't know the reason of the current problem.

According to the header of that posting it was delivered to gwaiyur.mb-net.net which in fact is news6.open-news-network.org. The sever status page of Open News Network[1] shows problems of news6.open-news-network.org starting at 2022-06-12 12:36 and lasting at least until 2022-06-15 09:43. But there is an ok status later that day, the next day and today.

So I would assume the latest announcements should have appeared here.

Posting via NNTP is disabled on the open-news-network.org servers. The
CTAN mailing list software now uses news.solani.org and so far this
seems to work. Many thanks for your efforts to get the Mail→News
gateway working again and especially to Ulrich for pointing out
news.solani.org.

Best
Erik
