maybe someone knowledgeable with mutt and procmail, or whatever stuff is mostly
used could make a `debian-lists-reader-help` packages that contains the
apropiate config files needed to easily read the different debian mailing
lists, as well as a small documentation or howto on how to best use them so
that the less promail/mutt/... savvy users can read their mail easily.

Is there anywhere a debian-lists-policy document, who wuold describe in which
case to write to which lists, what kind of threads, and other such stuff. If
yes it could go also in such a package ...

I would do it, but my knowledge on debian lists and procmail stuff is a bit
limited ...
