That's really the biggest motive for my suggestion. OTOH, python-dev at
the moment doesn't have a ton of held messages, because the list was
actually misconfigured to accept all non-member posts until about 4
hours ago. What's there now is all unwanted (spam, virus bounces, etc).
Ideally, Mailman would have a challenge-response system for non-member
posters, but I don't want to get into that here.
Right now, Jeremy and I are the only admins and neither of us has much
time to be diligent in clearing the queue. So maybe let's turn this
around: if I can get 3 volunteers to be python-dev moderators, we'll
leave the current policy of holding non-member postings for approval.
Otherwise, we'll auto reject them.
Email me directly if you're interested.
