Good to know, thanks sebb, and apologies to Alex who called it a couple
of days ago!

I'm not sure I understand the practical difference between "confirming
an allow" and "subscribing the e-mail to the allow list" as they seem to
have the same effect, i.e. why would the moderate e-mail need the
hashed-up string, and not just use dev-allow-subscribe-user=example.com@...?

Back to John's original question then,

from what I just learnt, it would be for the moderator to send mail to
dev-allow-subscribe-no-reply=apache.org@tamaya.i.a.o
