The proper way to set up procmailrc is to filter on the List-ID:
header.  This is guaranteed to be independent of the actual
posting address that is used.  (But if you really want to filter
on the To: and Cc: headers, you'll have to take into
consideration the address@hidden list address also.
It's apparently a GNU policy that a address must be
available for each GNU-related list.)

Let's not get into name-calling here please.  If you've been
reading this list at all, you'll know that Gopal is very
competent.  Let's face it, it can be confusing (at least for
non-native speakers of English like me) whether the list is 
address@hidden or address@hidden - I know that I've
made this mistake too.  So, making both addresses work is the
right thing to do.
