Subject: [PATCH] HACKING: stop advertising mailing list subscription info
Date: Mon, 15 Apr 2019 07:32:49 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190415073249.22279-1-e@80x24.org> (raw)

It's still available, but no point in advertising something
which increases the dependency on a centralized subscriber list.
In fact, it's actively against the goal of promoting resistance
against centralization.

-For now, one may optionally subscribe to the mailing list by
-sending an email to: meta+subscribe@public-inbox.org
-(and confirming).  However, reading over the mailing list is
-the least reliable method of reading a public-inbox.
