I filled that that subscribe form twice, in both of them I got this:

Your subscription request has been received, and will soon be acted upon.

But nothing else.
Curiously, however, I just did it again and I got an appropriate
confirmation letter.


Back to the issue, I like to follow the bash configuration idea, you first
have your system-wide configuration and then each user can overwrite
certain configurations in his/hers local file. So, whenever you update
Geany, you would update everything, but the user's specific modifications
of the configuration defaults.
