Dear all,

in consultation with Guus Schreiber and Alistair Miles we decided to
enable the archive approval system for this list, too. The goal is to
reduce spamming as much as we can.

The way this system works is: the first time someone posts to a list,
they are immediately sent back a response that asks  them for approval
to archive their message on our site. These  responses are generally
ignored by spammers, and regular participants just need to submit a
simple web form giving us permission to archive their message. It is
done only once, of course.

It is a small and one-time disagreement but I am sure all of you agree
that it is worth doing this.
