[Mailman-Users] Allowing users to join without specifying pas swords

Hmmm, the README says that script only currently works with unsubscribe
requests, but does not handle subscribe requests.  Is there any way to
subscribe without supplying a password?

It looks like Mailman is designed from the ground up with the assumption
that passwords will be used.  Is that correct?

Thanks again for the help!
