I personally wouldn't recommend that you unsubscribe -- just convert to
e.g. digest mode and be careful about the use of "vacation".  With
mailman, you can also literally turn the list on and off like a spigot.
That way you can remain subscribed all the time, but turn off the list
before you leave and turn it on again when you get back.  You can catch
up at your leisure by browsing the time-ordered list archives for the
time you were gone -- you needn't miss anything if you don't want to.
