I, too, apologize in advance for using this mailing list to discuss
the spam coming from it. If there's a better place to have a meta-
discussion of the NetBSD lists themselves, I'd rather use that forum.

Right now we're letting the spammers bombard our lists and then (after
the Internet has already been burdened with the load of spilth), we're
making every subscriber run procmail.

Let's change the lists to only accept messages from people who have
actually bothered to subscribe. This would be much simpler than having
a moderator and should be just as effective.

in -current is due to be fixed? (Yes, I'm willing to help if need be).
