The zodb-checkins list is set to hold postings (for moderator review)
from non-members.  I run that list, and approve/discard held postings
as appropriate.  A steady trickle of spam gets sent to that list, so I
wouldn't advise allowing non-member posting without moderator review. 
The policy on zodb-checkins works fine (no spam gets thru, no legit
checkin messages get lost).

In contrast, the zope-checkins list admin is still listed as Ken
Mannheimer, and I doubt he pays attention to that duty anymore. 
Someone else should volunteer to take it over.

Note that we did lose a few days' worth of checkin messages on _all_
zope.org checkin lists a few weeks ago, due to a mistake.  There's no
"good reason" I know of for losing any messages after that, though.
