Subject Reject or ignore spam?
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2006 10:51:28 GMT
Hi George,

 From the http://apache.planetmirror.com.au/dev/committers.html:
I am a moderator and receive these "MODERATE" emails.

First look in the mail and check if it is spam (or other severely  
misguided mail). If it is, then just ignore the mail and it will  
bounce after 5 days, or reply to the -reject address in the mail header.

If you *should* ignore spam for the reason you give below, perhaps  
this section should be edited...

Craig
