Following up on Luke's message: For those of you who have not used Mailman's
topic feature, here's the help text directly from Mailman's administrative
interface. (For those of you not familiar with regular expressions, don't
worry too much. ;-) Bottom line, in this case at least, is "the string

| The topic filter categorizes each incoming email message
| according to regular expression filters you specify below. If
| the message's Subject: or Keywords: header contains a match
| against a topic filter, the message is logically placed into a
| topic bucket. Each user can then choose to only receive
| messages from the mailing list for a particular topic bucket
| (or buckets). Any message not categorized in a topic bucket
| registered with the user is not delivered to the list.
| Note that this feature only works with regular delivery, not
| digest delivery.
| The body of the message can also be optionally scanned for
| Subject: and Keywords: headers [depending upon how the list
| has been configured by a list administrator].

To take advantage of topics, follow the link at the bottom of your mail to
your subscription page, in this case
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/listinfo/sugar-devel and proceed to the form at
the bottom which asks:

| To unsubscribe from sugar-devel, get a password reminder, or change your
| subscription options enter your subscription email address:

Enter your e-mail address, and when prompted, your password.  Scroll down
the next page until you see:

| Which topic categories would you like to subscribe to?
| By selecting one or more topics, you can filter the
| traffic on the mailing list, so as to receive only a
| subset of the messages. If a message matches
| one of your selected topics, then you will get the
| message, otherwise you will not.
| If a message does not match any topic, the delivery
| rule depends on the setting of the option below. If you
| do not select any topics of interest, you will get all
| the messages sent to the mailing list.
| Do you want to receive messages that do not match | any topic filter?
| This option only takes effect if you've subscribed to at least| one topic
above. It describes what the default delivery rule
| is for messages that don't match any topic filter. Selecting
| No says that if the message does not match any topic filters,
| then you won't get the message, while selecting Yes says to
| deliver such non-matching messages to you.
| If no topics of interest are selected above, then you will receive
| every message sent to the mailing list.

Make your changes to the above two questions, and don't forget to click the
"Submit my changes" button when done.
