[Systems] email from sugar labs lists tends to fall into SPAM folder...

Yes, you are right. Definitely, DMARC will be useful in the @sugarlabs.org
domain. But I guess it won't be as helpful in @lists.sugarlabs.org. Every
email from @lists.slo is sent through sunjammer and hence every email will
be signed. In this case, a 100% DKIM success rate is expected. Therefore,
in this particular case, DMARC will be useful if we want to get data
reports in order to analyze our mail streams or if we want to set a reject
policy for all not-aligned messages.

The recommended process to apply DMARC is: (1) publish a DMARC record with
a "none" flag set for the policies, which requests data report; (2) analyze
the data and modify your mail streams as appropriate and (3) modify your
DMARC policy flags from “none” to “quarantine” to “reject” as you gain
experience. So, a good start would be trying to apply this steps. What
would be the correct destination email address to receive the data reports?

In this particular case we are looking this at the sender's perspective. I
have no knowledge about how to process this DMARC header as a email
