FAQ
All,

I'm supposed to be a moderator for pgsql-announce so that I can approve
release announcements and the like. However, I don't seem to have the
correct permissions:

Showtokens error:
Your request was denied.

An administrative password is required to use the showtokens command.

Can someone fix?

    Each single moderation token gives you permission to touch that single
    approval email and nothing else. If you want to moderate other messages
    you need to login with your email and password, plus the list address
    (or follow the URL in other moderation tokens). It is not very
    intuitive behavior.

    That's what I did. Apparently josh@agliodbs.com doesn't have moderation permission at all.

    Come to think of it, I really should have full admin on -announce. Given the number of announcements I send out, I really need the ability to unsubscribe people with bad email settings (like vacation messages which go to sender, or invalid addresses).
