if even the GMANE admins cannot tell me exactly how to make it work that their verified accounts can send to us without subscription, I honestly don't care a lot.

First, my comment wasn't aimed at you. The person I responded to had no concept of what gmane was or how it worked.

I imagine that the address Gmane forwards a message to the mailing list from has to be subscribed to the mailing list.

The following is from . Note "the MAIL FROM envelope has to be It is currently the address that Gmane is subscribed to".

   Phase Four: Sending to the Mailing List

   Finally, the message is sent to the mailing list. The mailing list may or may not accept
   the message, but that's not really my problem.
   The original From header is preserved -- Gmane doesn't rewrite any of the headers. However,
   the RFC2821 MAIL FROM envelope is set.

   Gmane can't forge messages as coming from somewhere it doesn't come from, in these SPF
   days. So the MAIL FROM envelope has to be It is currently the address
   that Gmane is subscribed to, but that may change in the future.

   These all get the form answer "Read the FAQ". No matter what.
