I've been experimenting with the best way to prevent spam on the checkins 
list (and bring it in line with the phenomenal effectiveness of the 
subsribers-only policy on the regular zope.org lists).  The thing i tried 
friday, using a combination of mailman's spam filter rules and 
subscriber-only rules, turns out to not work, so i'm falling back to a 
slightly less tidy but apparently viable method.

The new method is to subscribe the account that is attributed as the 
envelope "Sender" for the checkin messages to the various lists, with 
email delivery disabled on that subscription, and then restrict the lists 
to subscriber-only postings.  That's worked in my limited tests.

I'm going to keep the restriction set to 'Hold' while we're confirming 
that this works as expected, in case i'm mistaken (again).  Let me know if 
you encounter any problems (or they encounter you?-).
