An update to the situation:
We found on Friday that the emails were still going to the lists or project
owners (or whoever was configured to receive updates). We disabled the
emailing of these messages Friday afternoon (EDT); if you receive any more,
let us know.
Today we went through the comments and deleted ones created on or after April
14th. This should remove the spam comments from this recent attack from your
If you come across anything else that looks like it might've been from this
attack, let us know.
If anyone would like to help restore functionality to the old notes system let
me know; otherwise we will continue to recommend using Drupal for forums and
things requiring comments as the tools available there for stopping comment
spam are much more robust and can be updated more easily.
