Considering Debian lists are even more exposed to SPAM, yet open-post,
and still these receive less SPAM, I know there are ways. I won't
describe those ways here as I don't know the one Debian lists use, nor
whether the ways I use for my own mail would apply to Alioth, but the
fact is there are ways.

Instead of trying to change the individual configuration of each list,
wouldn't it be wiser to request changes in mailing-list setup to the
list masters, i.e. Alioth admins?
My goal was not to stop you from halting SPAM, but to prevent a nasty
setup with side-effects for bug submitters.
