Personally I don't see that python-dev has a problem with non-member 
postings. There's the occasional post that should have been sent to 
python-list, but that happens only once a week or so, and usually 
there's only one "wrong list" reply.

I tend to prefer members-only only for lists where the signal-noise 
ratio drops below 90% or less. Even with the current virusstorm 
python-dev seems to keep doing pretty good.
