I'm not entirely comfortable with blindly white-listing anyone who posts to linaro-dev with something that doesn't look like spam, for several reasons:
- That is not a great way to run a moderated mailing list.
- IT aren't going to be in the best position to say whether or not the
sender should be able to send to linaro-dev, even if they didn't send spam. 3. The whitelist is going to start getting very big very quickly, reducing the effectiveness of the mailing system and of the moderation function.
I understand your viewpoint, but the most important part is: mails should reach everybody as soon as possible. Currently few of them are never reaching us :)
This may need a bit more thought, I suspect. I suggest that there should be more than one non-IT person with administrator access to the list so that the moderator queue can be checked more frequently that is currently being done at the moment.
That's a good one and from their rather than blindly adding people to white-list, developers can actually decide pick people they trust.
I am ready to be part of this team of non-IT people.
