it's not the first time such a question is raised, I did that recently 
enough, for a foo-package I don't even remember (some python messages 
that bounced to me). that is completely inadequate, and whitelisting 
any @bugs.debian.org From address is trivial.

I've already stated it, and I do it again: I do consider ok that the 
Maintainer field of some co-maintained package is a list, that really 
makes sense, but *that* list should never ever use sender-based 
moderation. When some bug report barfs at me with moderation messages, 
I just stop sending bug reports.
