It's fine. I'd suggest to put a script which the user has to call
anywhere to make it as simple as possible for newcommers. Am I correct
that this trouble (approval / registration) is just for fighting SPAM?
I've thoght that not individual users will be senders of mail but the
CVS system. Perhaps this could be approached that we have only one
poster to this list firstname.lastname@example.org (or whatever). Moreover I wonder
if it is the case that each subject has to start with "cdd/" so we
could move out any other mail with different subject which would sort
out most of the possible spam, IMHO.
