Except the MTA doesn't know whether or not the post is from a list

One could set Privacy options... -> Sender filters ->
generic_nonmember_action to Discard and Privacy options... -> Sender
filters -> forward_auto_discards to Yes. This will cause all
non-member posts to be discarded from the list but forwarded as an
attachment to a message To: LISTNAME-owner at ..., From:
LISTNAME-bounces at ... with Subject: 'Auto-discard notification'. One
could set one of the owner/moderator addresses to an address which
pipes to a process which looks for that message and extracts the
attached message/rfc822 part and sends it to the ticketing system.

Or, one could just add the pipe to that process to the LISTNAME-owner
alias in the MTA, or pipe all LISTNAME-owner mail to a process which
either pipes the mail to 'mailman LISTNAME owner' or sends the
attached message to the ticket system.
