I just wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" for your work on this.  Prior to this
change, I was unable to find any way to locally configure the alioth lists I
admin to allow all (subscriber,BTS,ftp-master,svn commit) mail through
without manually maintaining a whitelist of subscribers.  Now all the good
mail is getting through, and I don't have to moderate posts (except
rejecting the occasional spam) or keep track of subscribers.  This was a
long-time annoyance of mine, and I'm very happy to see it finally fixed once
for all.  Kudos!
