As a specific measure against potential abuse as well as a way of
helping out newcomers, what if instead of making new contributors CC
guix-mentors, we made it so that forwarding to guix-mentors is handled
by the spam filter?  That is once it's established that a new
contribution is actually a contribution, the patch is forwarded
separately to guix-mentors (along with reply-to: for the original bug
etc. set up in a way that's useful to mentors), claiming takes place,
and so on.
