The dev & user lists should both be listed as *requiring* subscribing
before posting. Sometimes I will manually mark email addrs sent for
modetration as allowed to post without subs, eg if we're having a
discussion that is cross-posted to qemu-devel or similar, but we
should tell users to subscribe otherwise their emails can easily sit
in the moderation queue for days or weeks at a time or just be dropped
entirely as spam is purged.
