There are five lists, and they are all archived. If you go to:
there are links to all of them, including the info pages that have links
to the archives. For example,
<http://mail.python.org/pipermail/spambayes> has the archives for this

If you google for, for example, "site:mail.python.org spambayes
term_I_am_interested in", you should get all the info you need (which is
in the archives).

You should only need to sign up to one - this one. The -dev list is
really only for those interested in the development of spambayes. If
you have a development idea, but no interest in doing the development,
then you can post it here and one of the developers will notice it (and
maybe move discussion to -dev). The check-ins list is really only of
use if you are a developer or running from current cvs. The bugs list
likewise (if you are monitoring a particular bug, then it's easier to
use sourceforge's monitoring system), although if you really want to
know what bugs have been found, then you might want to read that list.
You might also want to subscribe to the announce list, but it's
extremely low volume, and in any case messages to it tend to be cc'd to
this list anyway.

In what way would you like to help? The FAQ about "how can I help" has
information about the main ways in which people can help - do any of
them sound like you (or do any sound definitely not like you?)? One way
to start is to consider what would make spambayes better for you (or
what would have made it easier to setup for you, or easier for you to
find out about it, ...), and figure out a way that we can improve that.
