Hi Developers,

I've just uploaded a new patch to enable 'sibling list' feature in
mailman non-digest delivery.  I'd like to get feedback from develpers on
this feature, particularly on the naming ... sibling.  ;-)


Here are excerpts from the patch tracker.

- Sibling lists are other mailing lists on this site
whose members are excluded from regular delivery if
those list addresses appear in To: or Cc: header.

- The list addresses should be witten in full mail
address format (e.g. mailman at example.com).  Do not
specify the list address mutually in the sibling list
configuration page or those doubled members won't get


- Is the terminology 'sibling' appropriate?

- Need more comments in the processing code
