Yes, I took 'list' to mean 'mailing list', not 'newsgroup'.

Two newsgroups, comp.lang.python and gmane.comp.python.general, and
(indirectly, I believe) a googlegroup.

No, not on any of them. However, as near as I can tell, gmane sends
posts to python-list first and only displays and archives posts that go
out to the list (and back to gmane, if they originate there, like this
one). Gmane also has a spam filter and after-the-fact spam reporting.
People on c.l.p and py g.g. benefit from filtering of spam originally
sent to the list or gmane. About half of it originates from gmail
acounts but I do not know (and have not checked) whether gmail posts
come directly or via gg.
