Replying to my own request, but there you go.
I found that reading the email about moderation more carefully showed
that there was an attached email:
>list-name-request at parsnip.site.org
>If you reply to this message, keeping the Subject: header intact,
>Mailman will discard the held message. Do this if the message is

It was a little bit tricky, but while I could not figure out how to
reply to the attached message, I could cut and paste the Subject: line
into a new message to the right address.
(P.S. I found in the archives a note from Jon Carnes suggesting sending
"help" command to the list-request address. This got me to the
"confirm" command, which actually led to searching for confirm and
finding the attachment email which I had not thought to try and read
