[gnome.org #14086] spam subscription requests

After a first look at the configuration of the release-team mailing
list it seems 'subscription_policy' is set to be 'Approval' which
means you will be triggered by any fraudolent subscription request
the list will receive. Given the bots won't be able to verify their
confirmation email moving the subscription_policy to 'Confirm and
Approve' will fix the problem for the list. I did the change myself
now, hopefully Mailman 3 will bring some more tools to prevent these
kind of issues.

Thank you Andrea, I didn't know such an option existed.

Very welcome! Seems we have no more business on this ticket, marking it as 'resolved'.
