Thanks for this! Off-list Bernt also provided me with more detailed
instructions. When you want to subscribe without automatically receiving
any mail, first you have to subscribe as usual and then either log
into the Mailman online interface and uncheck the `Mail delivery'
option, or use the mailing interface, i.e. send an e-mail to
address@hidden with `help' in subject or body and follow
the instructions (I did the former, the latter option is implied by the
information e-mail sent to you upon subscribing).
So, I'm still not a fan of subscribed-only mailing lists, but this is a
viable compromise in this case. Thanks to all for help!
