[REUSE] Bug in the subscribe form of this mailing list

Dear all,

I've just subscribed to this list, and am looking forward to participating
in some of the discussions regarding the REUSE specification and its
associated tooling. However, I came up against an issue with the web form
for subscribing to this list.

Upon entering the correct information into the form, I got an error message
saying "The form is tool old. Please GET it again." - a screenshot of this
message is attached. This wasn't resolved by merely refreshing the page;
but I managed to subscribe by selecting the digest mode on the form and
changing that back in the Mailman settings once successfully subscribed.

I have to admit that I'm rather intrigued by this error - I would expect
such a form to be using a POST request. Is the form being fetched from some
sort of reverse proxy cache, maybe?

I hope this report is useful!

Best wishes,
