Although not impossible, it's not easy for spammers to get on this list,
since verifying registration requires human intervention.  If you're
having trouble separating fedora-docs-list mail from your normal mail,
try using a filter that distinguishes it based on Recipients or List-Id
tags in the source.  Most email clients have this capability.

I use Evolution and the "Filters" option, and move incoming mail into a
"fedora-docs" folder if it has a "Recipients" tag that includes
"fedora-docs-list redhat com".  Try it, you'll like it!

Of course, the content of this mail shows that it's clearly not spam and
directly pertains to Fedora documentation, which is another useful
clue. :-)
