Over on the spambayes list, Yakov Shafranovich sent this, and later asked:

    Is there anyone who is willing to participate in a mailing list on
    filtering standards?

Yakov, I'm forwarding this to the spambayes-dev at python.org list, because
that's where the SpamBayes developers congregate.  If you're going to send
info about the mailing list (which is welcome!), please use

    mailto:spambayes-dev at python.org

Subject: [Spambayes] Standards for Filtering

Daniel Quinlan of SpamAssassin suggested that I should contact you. I
co-chair the Anti-Spam Research Group (ASRG) of the IRTF [asrg.sp.am]
together with John Levine. The ASRG does pre-standards work and research
for the IETF. We have been thinking about different ways that standards
can help the filtering community and what we currently have on the table
is standard headers and dynamic filtering updates (like anti-virus
programs do). We also have a subgroup for filtering work which is
currently being formed (see http://asrg.sp.am/subgroups/filtering.shtml).

What I am wondering, is whether the filtering community can benefit from
standards and if filtering folks are willing to discuss such standards,
and cooperate with each other.
