Hmm, this is getting weird.  I'm definitely not running SpamAssasin here
locally, and I doubt its being run on our mail server either.  My non
debian-user mail I've checked at random doesn't have X-Spam-Status
headers either.  I could have sworn those headers came from the list.
Note that Colin has a debian.org address, so its quite conceivable that
SA running at the mailing list could whitelist all debian.org addresses.
Anyone know for sure what's happening here?
