Done. How can I check whether it worked (other than subscribing from a
second address)? I don't see anything regarding topics in

I'm not sure that's a good idea. For one thing it doesn't play nice with
how topic filters work. If someone wants to filter out patches (instead
of receiving only patches), the way to achieve that is to check all
other topics and the "Do you want to receive messages that do not match
any topic filter?" option.

The other question that comes up is whether mailman assigns messages to
all matching topics or just the first one. I haven't found any answer
to this when I searched for it some time ago. Since the admin interface
let's you choose the insertion point for new topics, mailman probably
matches just the first topic, so a !PATCH filter wouldn't work anyway.
