I think he's saying that there's an extra piece of "is this spam?"
information that you can have access too if you'd like.
This is a generous offer, and I think it should be accepted. Perhaps
messages flagged as spam by the gmane reviewers could count as one of
the DD votes?
btw, the spam problem is just as large (or even larger, judging by what
makes it to my mailboxes) on Alioth lists. Is there any work on
extending the Debian solution to those?
