I don't know pretty much anything about the way that mail to python.org is
managed, but this conversation ended up on spambayes-dev, so I'm going to
comment anyway <wink>.

Might this be a case for some nice Mailman-SpamBayes integration?  If
training a list-specific database could be done as part of something that
admin people already do with Mailman, that would seem like a good thing.
Clicking discard on the review page adds the message to a spam corpus, for
example, and have some sort of semi-regular in=-the-quiet-moments tte script
that runs through that corpus and the archive (for ham) to update training.

But no, I don't think I'm offering to do the coding work...
