Sorry, I don't think this is possible.  Debian lists are run by the
Debian listmasters, and there are about a hundred of them, none of which
have a tag in the subject AFAIK.

I filter on X-Mailing-List, here is the procmail rule I use to get all
Debian lists filtered:

* ^X-Mailing-List: <debian-.+@lists.debian.org>
* ^X-Mailing-List: <debian-\/[-a-zA-Z0-9]+

maybe that helps, other header like List-Id should work as well.

I am not totally sure, but I think the listmasters consider it bad

In any case, there is nothing we (the people on this list) can do about
this, you would have to contact the listmasters.
