The issue was no such much the moderator had to approve the message
because of the size but the fact that the e-mail messages to the list
are rather large.  It took about 10 munites to get my Evolution client
to read the entire message.  Mailman is probably not the software we not
to use for this kind of function, that is, storing backup logs, but it
is convenient.  

Anyhow, if Mailman 3 will include this kind of functionality, then we
will wait for its release.

Thanks, Darren
