Since gmane has no problem maintaining a two-way gateway to their
newsgroup, perhaps instead of having the two mailing lists cross linked,
that gmane could gate a second mailing list (yahoo) to their news server.
If gmane will agree to that, it might solve some of the confusion.
I also think that the e-mail address that is being used to feed the
Yahoo groups mailing list can be set to "hidden", so that people
subscribed to the Yahoo list can not reply/all to it.
Gating them two ways requires both mailing lists to filter out messages
that have both YAHOO inserted headers and Maltedmedia inserted headers,
because only a message that has been posted on both lists would have both.
SpamAssassin might be able to filter that out.
It also may be possible to find a way to the Maltedmedia list to simply
ignore all postings that also have the YAHOO e-mail address as also a
destination, unless it came from the Yahoo list.
I am subscribed to both lists on multiple e-mail addresses, but have all
of them set to no-mail as for me, it is usually much more convenient to
use a newsreader on gmane.
