Well, it looks like the mailing lists are completely broken now.  When
I tried last month, it was still possible to get around the mailman
bug that was triggered during the confirmation step.  But now the
crash occurs during the first step of the subscription, so there is no
way to avoid it.  I just tried to subscribe a new address to the
gimp-web and gimp-developer mailing lists and I immediately got the
following error message:

  Bug in Mailman version 2.1b4

  We're sorry, we hit a bug!

  If you would like to help us identify the problem, please email a
  copy of this page to the webmaster for this site with a description
  of what happened. Thanks!


  Traceback (most recent call last):

So after the archives, now it is the subscription mechanism that is
broken.  If I am not mistaken, nobody can subscribe to any of the gimp
mailing lists (user, developer or web) until this problem is fixed.

Gimp-developer mailing list
