Should it really take a detailed FAQ entry to explain how to set
a list open or closed? This is such a basic requirement it should be
obvious. It is obvious in other list management software.

I'm not flaming the list. I expressed some feedback which could be
used to make Mailman even better. I want to see the best possible
Mailman, and will contribute code if I can. But if the list admin
interface is not intuitive and easy to use, then people are not going
to use Mailman. That's not good.
