of course we do require subscription for people who want to subscribe to
mailing lists. Otherwise, we'd be the victim of spam very soon.

Gmane is a newsgroup. They require verification of the the sender before they post the message. This serves the same purpose as subscribing to this list. Any senders of spam can be removed.

It is redundant to require the user to subscribe to the mailing list in order to post through Gmane. The page at clearly states "Status: posting allowed".

If subscription to the mailing list is required, it should be stated on the Gmane page, although there is no real need to dual subscribe and defeats the whole purpose of Gmane.
