Several suggestions:

Mention that this is high-volume.

moderate volume

low-volume, and restricted posting

I'd reword this (I'm not a list admin, so I don't know the specifics of
this list setup, but on other mailman-based lists that I do manage,
non-subscribers can post after moderation delays and can be whitelisted
even without subscription; and new subscribers are still subject to a
first-time moderation delay to help cut down on spurious subscriptions
for the purpose of spreading spam).  If so, then this wording might be
more accurate:

It is recommended but not required that you subscribe before posting to
user and development lists.  First-time posts may be subject to manual
moderation delays.  You can subscribe at the linked webpages above.

Can we also point to our hacking.html page, which has better
instructions for posting a patch?
