All this address checking or mangling isn't necessary, even. The only
person/thing that should post to this list is the Debian archive maintenance
software, when it installs a new package to stable. It can communicate with
the list management software to authenticate itself, using a special header,
or something like that.

This recent discussion perhaps seems redundant and offtopic to some people,
and I agree, however, it can one positive effect -- the listmasters can see
that the readership is really interested in them implementing the above
solution, which would be an incentive for them to do it. (I guess :)
