I have one exception I'd like us to make regarding auto rejection.
Historically the aur-requests list has not required subscription to reply. At some point this was removed and I think it's unreasonable for AUR maintainers to subscribe to the high traffic aur-requests just so they can reply to emails.
It also decreases the value for having the list in the first place if people don't bother to reply to the requests they are being emailed.
I see that being a problem going forward, as it requires manual intervention by a moderator if things go wrong (e.g. spam), but I also see the issue with the signup for that mailing list. Not really sure how to solve that without wasting people hours on it though :S I'd be fine having it non-signup, but I also wouldn't want to do moderation for that list then tbh.
Either way: I guess we need to update our documentation in regards to this in the wiki and also in the respective list overview pages so that people are instructed to sign up (if they have not done so already).
