LONG(ISH) INTRODUCTION

Hi. There's been an exchange of e-mails on the Lucene mailing list (started by me) about the
issue gmail has with grouping (creating threads) out of JIRA notification e-mails. Apparently,
gmail does not make use of standard e-mail headers and groups by e-mail subject ONLY (sadly,
it doesn't seem like they will ever to anything about it). For those using gmail with high-volume
projects like Lucene this creates a big headache because every update of each issue generates
a new e-mail and there is no way to 'mute' an entire issue.

A couple home-grown solutions have been suggested -- modifying subjects via IMAP directly
on gmail accounts and (mine) modifying e-mail subject headers by piping e-mails through procmail.

PROBLEM/QUESTION

Is it possible/ allowed for apache committers (those having @apache.org e-mails) to use procmail
on people.apache.org? What is the "correct" way of setting up a procmail filter together with
the existing MTA (and .forward rule, I assume)?

Thanks in advance for your help.
