Hi Thomas,

Great.  I am glad to hear it is helping you out.

Yes.  I have set this up and the spam filtering is now active there.
Hopefully the noise through the mailing list will be greatly reduced.

Is hurdextras-hackers an open list where people would normally post
from non-subscribed addresses?  Most lists are but not being
familiar with the list I wanted to ask what the expectation was here.

I cleaned out the junk from hurdextras-commit hold queue.  There was
quite a bit going back for a while.  And even with all of the spam in
the hold queue I can see from the archive that there was still a lot
going out through the lists.

I don't have the recipe immediately available for configuring a CVS
log archive so this may take some tinkering with mailman to get the
right configuration in place.  There are only six members total on
that list.  I would set it so that all mail from all addresses but the
cvs logger would be automatically discarded.  Because it is not a
discussion list and all discussion is redirected to hurdextras-hackers
I think that is appropriate.

But it looks to me like changes are coming from subscribers and not
from the cvs logger.

But the web interface does not show me the actual mail headers so I
can't really be sure and would guess that it is from the user and
resent-from the cvs logger.  I have subscribed so I should see the
full headers from one of the next messages and will be able to make a
better configuration with that information.

Until we can verify the cvs logger mail headers I set it up the same
way as the hurdextras-hackers list.  It is somewhat less efficient.
But not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

If anyone would like further information please don't hesitate to send
me questions.
