Here, how we do it for the GRASS bugtracker (RT):

- RT accepts any mail, spam filter is applied locally (spamassassin,
  if I recall correctly);
- RT forwards new bug report to 'grass5' developers list where
  such messages are spamfiltered again (bogofilter). The 'grass5' list
  is only open to subscribers. RT is a granted email address without
  subscription (Mailman permits that);
- additionally a set of hand-written procmail rules filter further

Works well.
