Well, someone might want to look into this. The first time I subscribed 
under a different email address about 2 weeks ago when I first installed 
mailman. 10 minutes after I subscribed to this list, I received a 
"confirm" mailman email in spanish for the factoria list. I thought

installation and so I forgot about it.

Then yesterday (two weeks after I first subscribed under a different 
email address), I subscribed again to this list and today I get another 
confirm mailman email in spanish for this factoria list.
