It'll normally be, assuming that the mail is sent
directly from debbugs to the mailing list, and not via as it is currently. [Obviously, that should be
easily changeable if it's restricted like that, as it's not always
going to be that machine.]

Right. And in any event, debbugs does have reasonable loop handling,
so most of these should be detected and discarded, *so long* as
X-Loop: is kept intact when the messages are forwarded to address@hidden

If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its
freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money it
values more, it will lose that, too.
