Hopefully not a dead issue, but again, automake is the better place.

Not at all; you're not the first person to struggle with this issue.

In fact, there is.  The gmane interface includes a web submission form
that allows you to post or reply to many lists; for autoconf, look at:

However, it is quite lousy at cross-threading; it doesn't know how to
reply-to-all, and if a message was cross-posted, you have to know the
original list that it was posted to if you want to find the entire thread.

The nabble interface is slightly better about displaying cross-posted
mail on all lists where it was sent, but tags on an advertising clause
if you post via the web interface (which is better than a legal
disclaimer, but still not ideal):

If anyone knows of a better web gateway that can properly handle
cross-posting, I would love to know about it.

One more thing - while there may be a rule about not sending mail from a
personal account while you are at work, there is no rule about sending
mail from a personal account when you get home.  If you don't mind the
latency of not asking the question until you get home, then that is also
a solution to avoiding an employer's legalese disclaimer.
