That is a reasonable suggestion, however please let me answer with a 
reasonable suggestion of my own:

I'm usually not following the day-to-day development of, say, kdebindings. 
Which means I am not subscribed to the kde-bindings mailing list. However, 
this list is the correct place, I guess, to report kde-bindings issues.

When I post something there, it's first held for moderator approval, which may 
take a while. For every single e-mail. For every kde team e-mail list. Again.

Mailman has this great feature of "whitelisting" senders even if they are not 
subscribers. Would you consider as a policy eventually whitelisting people 
with an obvious distro e-mail address on the public project mailing lists?

Does not have to be automatical and on the first try... it's just annoying if 
you get your third "... awaits moderator approval" mail from the same list...

Cheers, Andreas
