The rejection message BTW (for license-discuss where the same change is
being made as well as license-review) is:

"To limit SPAM, only members are allowed to post to this list. You can
subscribe to the list and/or ask license-{discuss,
review}-owner at opensource.org
to whitelist your email address."
