I've offered my assistance at least once. I'm the maintainer of
spamassassin and I'd be happy to help tweak spamassassin filters for
lists.d.o but I'd need access to murphy, the list server.
Given a hand sorted pile of spam and non-spam, custom generated scores
can be made for the lists which should greatly improve the situation.
But to do that, I'd need the raw mail as it is recieved by murphy.
Listmasters... let me know if you want my help.
