[Mailman-Users] Sibling lists and senders - regular_include

Hi, I've looked at all the posts I can find about this but I'm still unclear.

I have created an announcements list that includes several sublists in regular_include_lists.

There are also a number of individual subscribers (staff at our agency). I have set all but two of them to be moderated. The idea is that I want 2 of us (Vicki and Colleen) to be able to send to the announcements list, and the others to just receive posts.

What I'm unclear about is, if Vicki or Colleen are not members of one of the sublists in regular_include_lists, will our posts to announcements still get to the people who are only on those lists?

If someone is an announcements list administrator, will they be able to send to the announcements list and thus to all the sublist subscribers? Do we need to be announcement list members to post?

And just to clarify: if we want to be sure that digest members receive these posts but not duplicates, we should include all the lists in regular_exclude_lists (as well as includes) and include all the lists in To or Cc?

Thanks much!
