Yes, you can do this using procmail, though not quite in the way you 
describe. (Maybe it can be done like you describe too, but this seems 
simpler.)

If you clear the "email forwarded to" field and then create a 
~/.procmailrc on master.d.o with the following content, you should get 
the desired result.

<.procmailrc>
SHELL = /bin/sh
MAILDIR=$HOME/Mail
#DEFAULT=$MAILDIR/incoming      #completely optional
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/_procmail.`date +%Y%m`.log   #recommended
YEARMONTH=`/bin/date +%Y%m`
#VERBOSE=yes
#LOGABSTRACT=yes

# Keep mail from debian-private list on master
:0:
* ^X-Loop: debian-private@lists.debian.org
private

# Forward the rest to gmail account
:0
! naoliv@gmail.com
</.procmailrc>

With this your debian-private mail should end up in ~/Mail/private, so you 
need to read it (on master) using:
$ mutt -f ~/Mail/private

Cheers,
