It's fine :) @Jgreen is on vacs this whole week, and the week of March 23rd looks perfect.
The bouncehandler extension would alter the 'Return-Path' header of all emails sent out from wikis ( after this change ) so that bounces would come back all the way till polonium. Currently, polonium HTTP post's the bounce email to the 'bouncehandler' API of test2wikipedia, from where the user would be un-subscribed ( if the number of bounces received > 5 in a week ) from appropriate wiki-user db, or from CA. Currently its installed in group1 wikis, expect the wikipedias, and running good.
The immediate user impact would be negligible, considering that only a header from received emails would change
