So a fixed tag in the subject line would help.  I'm using a procmail
rule which stores mails to -devel with subject ITP: into a special folder.
Unfortunately there are ITPs with "intent to package" etc which are
not found by the rule.
So automatic generation of ITP-mails from wnpp package tzo debian-devel
would be OK if there is a fix tag.  Just foreward those mails to
/dev/null if you are bothered.

Kind regards
