I'm not sure that that mattered.

Neither.  This email contained:

Return-Path: <andrew@luminas.co.uk>
From: support@apache.org

... neither of which is subscribed to dev@cocoon.apache.org.

 From what I have read, ezmlm uses a separate SMTP 'SENDER' field, which 
isn't retained in the archive.  My bets are that this field contained 
the value savs@luminas.co.uk.
