Re: greylisting on debian.org?

Yep, I know about these arguments but Pierre Habouzit bringed an
interesting enhancement to greylisting by greylisting only systems
that are in some carefully chosen blacklists.

This is what is currently operational on lists.alioth.d.o

I see this as an interesting combination of RBL (which I dislike A LOT
when used alone) and greylisting. It reduced the amount of spam in
Alioth mailing list significantly.
