There should be no need to add aliases for that, they already exist.
The <listname>-join (and <listname>-leave) aliases will ignore the
subject and body.
The mailman list admin manual says this:
1.1 A List's Email Addresses
• mylist-join at example.com - by sending a message to this address, a
new member can request subscription to the list. Both the
Subject: header and body of such a message are ignored. Note that
mylist-subscribe at example.com is an alias for the -join address.
• mylist-leave at example.com - by sending a message to this address,
a member can request unsubscription from the list. As with the
-join address, the Subject: header and body of the message is
ignored. Note that mylist-unsubscribe at example.com is an alias for
the -leave address.
I don't know for sure if these were in 2.1.3, but I suspect they were.
