I'm slightly confused as to the problem.  If you want to post to mailing
lists using Gmane, just hit "a" to make a new post to a given list, or
"F" to make a followup.  The post will be sent following TMDA
verification (see below).

You must use a valid email address in the "From" field, because Gmane
will use this to send a confirmation email the first time you post to a
given mailing list to make sure you are a human.

This has nothing to do with subscribing to these mailing lists.  You do
not have to do this; in essence, Gmane has already "subscribed" on
behalf of all of its users--that's how it gets the mailing list messages.
