[Bug 650662] Need to renew mails + automatic subscription to foundation-list/announce mailing lists is badly broken

Awesome Tobias, about #1 I'll remember you to start running it within the end
of the current elections.

About #2, we do actually use these two form letters:

1. http://git.gnome.org/browse/mango/tree/www/renewal-template.txt
2. http://git.gnome.org/browse/mango/tree/www/approval-template.txt

as per 2. it would be nice to have the *new* member to be automatically
subscribed to foundation-announce, not sure for the renewal though. (I think
this shouldnt be needed for people renewing, if they ever unsubscribed from
there, there is no point in subscribing them again as you correctly pointed

so there are two ways of fixing this:

1. we get admin access on foundation-list/announce lists and we manually
subscribe *new* members (this is what alwais happened since the old wiki pages
[1] required every Membership Committee member to have admin status on both the
mailing lists above, this explains why)

2. we change the form letters suggesting the member to subscribe himself on
foundation-announce, where all the major GNOME announcements are sent.

I would personally like to go for 1. it's a bit more work for the Committee,
but really adding a new member to a mailing list is a one minute duty.
