Huh, why does the subscribe mail from email@example.com
include a `List-Post: <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>' header?
I did "Reply to all", and that sent the below to email@example.com
as well, without me noticing it (as I didn't pay close attention to the TOs).
This is the only list on sourceware.org I've seen that includes that header
in the subscribe/unsubscribe *-firstname.lastname@example.org mails. Oh well.
