I just wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" for your work on this. Prior to this
change, I was unable to find any way to locally configure the alioth lists I
admin to allow all (subscriber,BTS,ftp-master,svn commit) mail through
without manually maintaining a whitelist of subscribers. Now all the good
mail is getting through, and I don't have to moderate posts (except
rejecting the occasional spam) or keep track of subscribers. This was a
long-time annoyance of mine, and I'm very happy to see it finally fixed once
for all. Kudos!

Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
