IMHO, we should configure all of our mailing lists to be subscription only (i.e. automatically reject all mail by non-members). It makes no sense for anyone to moderate these emails and is a huge waste of time for people dealing with the moderation of the lists (I get enough spam everyday as it is... ;-)).
Sorry for late reply, vacation and hackercamp :)
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.
