#5100 Approving a mailing list subscription returns error
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by jflory7.

= Bug Description =
Approving a pending mailing list subscription request in a list that is open results in a server error.


= Bug Analysis =
This specific error is triggered when approving a pending member on the commops@lists.fedoraproject.org mailing list who is:

  1. Already subscribed
  2. Is listed as pending subscription request

= Fix Recommendation =
If this is a problem with a user subscribing in a time while a list requires approval to join, but joins after it is opened, approving the member should return a message that the user is already subscribed and then remove the pending request instead of returning an error.

I have reproduced the error and forwarded this bug upstream as https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/issues/193.

Thanks a lot for reporting.

The bug has been fixed upstream and will be deployed with the next push. Thanks again.
