I am subscribed to many Mozilla mailing lists as mike.shaver@gmail.com, which means that I should be allowed to post to any of them.  But when I just replied to a post that was crossing to a list I'm not on, I got

"In order to protect our mailing lists from spam, we require that all
posters be subscribers of the list to which they are posting. We
support several different ways of submitting your post. Pick the one
that works best for you.

If you wish to continue using e-mail to post, please visit
https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-extensions and subscribe to the
list. Once you have been subscribed, you may resubmit your post."

Suspect this was regressed by bug 348858.  Needs a fast fix, this is pretty painful.

I just checked, and you aren't subscribed to dev-extensions. That would be why you're getting the reject notice...

No, being subscribed to _any_ mozilla list should be enough to let me post to _any_ mozilla list.  It's been that way for quite a long time.

Correction -- you're subscribed, but you're subscribed as shaver@mozilla.org,
not mike.shaver@gmail.com.

Ah, that's a hack added to our mailman instance that doesn't apply to how it's set up now. I can add that back in...
