as of now I'm running Mailman 1.0b7+, and I can't get the
member_posting_only setting to work.
On my test list, I am subscribed with the address
<hmeland at ulrik.uio.no>. Here are the results of my testing:
Need approval Sender addr. `m_p_o' `posters'
------------- ------------ ------- ---------
Yes hmeland at ulrik.uio.no Yes ""
Yes hmeland at ulrik.uio.no Yes harald.meland at usit.uio.no
Yes harald.meland at usit.uio.no Yes harald.meland at usit.uio.no
No harald.meland at usit.uio.no No harald.meland at usit.uio.no
For the messages that needed approval while `posters' was set, the
approval request said:
Reason held: Only approved posters may post without moderator
(note the broken line wrapping)
When `posters' was empty, the approval request said:
Reason held: Postings from member addresses only.
even though I indeed was posting from a member address.
All tests were performed with minimal mail messages (Only From: and
Subject: headers, empty body) sent directly by telnetting to the SMTP
port of the machine my Mailman runs on.
Is all this due to some oversight of mine, or is it a bug?
