In the absence of anyone stepping forward to do this (maybe none of us
know anything about spamassassin?), I have set the devel list to
members only. This means that non-members will have their emails to
the list held (perhaps indefinitely) for approval. I do not like
this, and I would rather not do it, but this spam situation is simply
This solution is not workable for the support list, so hopefully we
can figure out a spam-fighting technique soon, or the spamprobe
databases will catch up. I fed them a corpus of several thousand
messages of spam this past weekend, but it does not seem to have
