The problem is rather the nature of subscribers-only list. It
requires approval if any non-list user posts. So when the list is
CC'ed, you'll need more approval works and loose the synchronism.
BTW, it seems that some my posts have been lost in a day that
alsa-devel ML stopped. The above quoted post seems not delivered
unless you were on Cc...
