Hi Larry,

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.

on our side, only senders who are subscribed to the list can post to it. I won't change this, as otherwise every spammer can just flood the list with emails.
