Bug#930948: Contradictory instruction upon subscription (new mail vs. reply)

Baptiste BEAUPLAT
Package: smartlist
Control: affects -1 + lists.debian.org

Dear maintainer,

When subscribing to a new list, two emails are sent to users. A
confirmation email and an acknowledgment one.

I find the following instruction quite confusing:

From the confirmation email:
    With a reasonable good email program a reply to this
    message should be sufficient

From the acknowledgment email:
    Send in a new mail, INSTEAD OF REPLYING
    the next time when issuing (un)subscribe requests.


Given that Smartlist processes correctly the reply, I suggest to simply
remove the WARNING message.
