[Mailman-Users] Public link to subscriber-only list?

As I wanted to contact the mailman folks, I followed the "Email Us"
link on the front page  of the mailman project, which points to this
mailman-users list, and had the bad surprise to see my post come back to
me because posting to the list is only allowed to subscribers, which I
I see very little point in having such a public link to a subscriber-only
list. I can easily imagine that many other users have followed the link
like I just did, and ended up frustrated that their post was rejected.
Thus, I would propose that one of the following actions is taken:
1* Make the list public (possibly by making non-member posts moderated
rather than rejected).
2* Make the link point to the list subscription page  rather than the
list address itself, as subscribing is the first thing that needs be
done here. This might add to confusion more than help though.
3* Remove the link altogether, as proposals 1 and 2 don't sound really
