For my part, I find it pretty offensive that a mailing list that's set as
the maintainer of a package would have mail filters configured this way in
the first place.  For the samba packaging team, for instance, I've taken
pains to adjust the spam filters to allow bts mail in automatically before
ever setting the maintainer field to point to the list; I would expect other
packaging teams to take the same care.
