Package: debbugs
Version: N/A; reported 2001-10-20
Severity: minor

The bug system doesn't seem to filter responses directed to the bug archives. 
I noticed this in Bug 68092, two spam messages are embedded. One is html spam, which 
would certainly be easy to filter out. Probably any old spam filter would do the 
trick, to reject spam messages from entering the bug system. There are a few
spam rejection packages in Debian.

While we're at it, we could reject spam from the mailing lists too.

Earlier today I enabled SpamAssassin filtering for all mail sent to the BTS.
Procmail and SpamAssassin have recently been installed into owner@bugs mail,
were we have monitored their progress and hit rate.

Last sunday, I enabled SpamAssassin filtering on a copy of all mail sent to
the BTS.  30% of the mail sent to the BTS(at least the mail that enters the
receive script) is spam, and of that, there were no false hits(at least with a
quick glance at the files).

With such high numbers(and such a good success rate), I have decided to not
wait a week for more data, but to roll it out now.

Also, Colin Watson has made a script to make it easy for us to edit .log
files(the file that stores the mails sent to a bug).  If some bug has spam
already inside it, then please send a mail to owner@bugs, asking for it to be
