Hi.  I noticed the mailing list archive for
pkg-osm-maint@lists.alioth.debian.org is filled with spam.  Did you
consider making the list moderated, only allowing subscribers to post
directly (and adding a whitelist of other addresses allowed to post
directloy) to avoid the spam making it to subscribers?

The moderation job become fairly easy when using the listadmin package
and script in Debian.  With a properly set up ~/.listadmin.ini file,
one can moderate a list in a few seconds.  I do this my self for the
mailman lists I maintain, and the 60 lists I moderate only take me a
minute every morning. :)

This is an example .listadmin.ini file:

  username u...@domain.com
  password secret
  spamlevel 23
  default discard
  discard_if_reason "Posting restricted to members only. Remove us from your 
mail list."

  adminurl https://{domain}/mailman/admindb/{list}

Cc to pkg-osm-maint@lists.alioth.debian.org, to let every subscriber
know about the idea. :)

Happy hacking
