Well, I didn't see it, even as I was pointed to it (but that may be just
me). Still, if someone wants to be unsubcribed the first hurdle is to
regonize the "List admin" link as something to be useful for that. And
if you are not so sure and just klick and look at it and only find
headings for subscribing you may not read each sentence to the end. And
if there is nothing to unsubscribe on the first section ("Subscribing to
rockbox") I would think I am wrong. But even if I look at the 2nd
section ("rockbox Subscribers", which already makes me wonder why there
are 2 similar sections to subscribe to rockbox) I read a sentence like:
"The subscribers list is only available to the list administrator.".
This definitely stopped me from reading further.

I only mention all this because often people who want to unsubscribe are
pointed to the "List admin" link with a tone as if it very obvious but I
think it is not.
