There are a couple of options in the mailing list configuration which
affect postings, i.e. whether you receive your own, and whether you
receive an acknowledgment.

You may want to try different settings for these.  Follow "unsubscribe"
the link at the end of this email.  At the bottom of that web page there
is a button marked "Unsubscribe or edit options".

I've noticed, if I send an email with a return address that is not the
one I registered with, I usually get a "waiting for moderator" email
asking me whether to continue waiting or cancel (through a URL).

I use evolution (evolution-2.0.4-4) and have only seen delays in posting
to the fedora-AMD64-list, as long as my return address is correct.
