I used to use procmail a couple decades ago, then I switched to Debian,
and Debian installed exim by default, and I started using exim to sort
my mail instead. My corresponding rule is:
if $h_X-Mailing-List: contains "debian-" then
No translation required. (And I prefer a single mailbox for all my
debian lists, which is why I just match on "debian-" instead of the full
name/address of the list.)
