I know what and how greylisting works, which is exactly what happened in
the log above.  The problem is that there is no sign of my email above,
not even the in-moderation notification.  I will try to re-send it...

I found the answer to my first question in the mailing list webpage, so
this is purely my fault, it seems I completely missed the other part of
that page.  Short story: all GnuPG mailing lists are subscribers-only:


I still think that this information should be added to the listinfo
pages as well, but this is another matter.

Sorry for the noise.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
