Yes, it's only very occasional but I have noticed parts of patchseries
getting dropped from time to time over the years. Thanks for
chasing this up, Bin.

I think the ideal would be for spamassassin to have a rule that
recognized patch emails -- the diff headers are pretty distinctive
and it seems very unlikely that any actual spam would be
masquerading as patches, so it should be safe to give them an
"almost certainly not spam" score.

While I'm here, I wanted to say thank you for running the mailing
list server and keeping the lists generally spam free. QEMU as a
project relies pretty heavily on the mailing lists for our patch
workflow and general project communication, and they've been a
reliable service for us for years.
