^^^^^^^^^^

Is this a typo? I hope it wasn't intended to filter messages with "management" 
in the
subject, e.g.:

"CVS management of /etc - permissions problem"
http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/info-cvs/2001-September/019826.html

"release management with CVS"
http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/info-cvs/2001-September/019846.html

Filtering out messages with "product" in the subject prohibits an innocent 
message like:

"Questions about your product "
http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/info-cvs/2001-May/014773.html

And anyone that  has a problem checking in a Rich Text Format document had 
better not
state that in the subject.
