Use this patch so that if you don't enter anything in any if the two
password boxes in the 'subsribe' form the mailman chooses it for you. Then
suppress the boxes altogether in the sub form. I have no such bypassing for
unsubscribes, however.

diff -r1.25 subscribe.py
<         error = 1
<         results = (results +
<                    "You must supply a valid password, and confirm it.<br>")
>         pw  = Utils.MakeRandomPassword()
>         pwc = pw
