Hello, I am Chris from Arch Linux Security Team and I want to ask for restricted acess for senders for the arch-security mailinglist. We had different issues in the past on this list including:
- neverending discussions. - broken MTAs (the newest one). Some emails from somebody are bouncing back to the mailinglist.
That's the reason why the security-team want a whitelist for this mailinglist. Everybody can subscribe but sending to it should be restricted to avoid this issues. I would be fine with it if the restriction is for everyone except the Arch Linux Developers, Trusted Users, and staff. If you want even more agressive rules I would be also fine if only our security team and some developers can write to it. According to my mail on the arch-dev-public mailinglist the security mailinglist should be for Arch Linux Security Advisories only.

Given there were no objections I've set the arch-security list to moderated and I've whitelisted all subscribers with @archlinux.org addresses. I'll whitelist others when required.
