Hmm, why do you think it requires disabling the subscriber only posting?

Any poster that want to post to the list has to be subscribed too. He
only do not get mail from it directly.

People would have to subscribe to the list before posting but never
receive mail only by subscribing to forrest-dev or lenya-dev, is that
not possible?

That should be done by this list to simplify the process. Is it not a
simple foreword like in:
cd /var/qmail/alias/
echo "| /var/qmail/bin/forward lenya-dev forrest-dev">.qmail-lefo

That would exclude all subscriber. Mails only go to both lists.

Can we then implement to forward all messages written to this list by
only forwarding to both mailing lists instead of the subscriber?
