The debian.org forwarding done by the LDAP distributed email system doesn't seem to implement the sender rewriting scheme (http://spf.pobox.com/srs).

And let's hope it will continue this way, SPF is a solution looking for
a problem.

The spam is a real problem, and it is demostrable that there cannot
exist a perfect solution (and I suppose also a good single solution).
SPF solve a small part of the "spam" problem: it will reduce e.g.
the viruses "from" support@microsoft.com and the bounces of viruses and spam "send from" my address ad d.o.

If spams forge address, there should be a real anti-anti-spam motivation, so SPF will help in this relative small field.
