As you’ve probably seen in your moderator queue :-), I’m a former
non-member: I used to read via, and thus posting as a
non-member.  Some of my previous messages are lost in limbo, it seems.

I’ve subscribed now, but I do find it a bit inconvenient; it’s also one
of the few public GNU mailing lists I know of (perhaps the only one)
where posting is now restricted to members.

No big deal, but I thought I’d mention my use case.
