Sorry, I'd only encountered lists that one subscribed to by emailing
them with the word subscribe in the subject or body (so I tried both.)
I followed the link you provided below but the response to clicking the
"Send in the request" button after entering mailing list name
cygwin-allow (and my e-mail address) was:
Cannot handle your mailing list request at this time...
You did not provide a mailing list name, or you've entered a mailing
list name which is not handled on sources.redhat.com.
Oh well. I guess I'll have to work on the "getting a better mailer"
