I guess you're right.  What we got a while back was to remove the
extra-aggressive filters on the cygwin mailing lists, so the spam
filtering on those are the same now as for any other mailing list on
sourceware.  So I assume (but I don't know that, actually) that
the same gmane filtering is done for all mailing lists on sware.
