I don't have any direct access to the FreeDesktop lists, so I cannot 
delete spam here. From what I recall, deleting spam in Mailman works 
from the command line via SSH, if you delete the mails out of the mbox 
file (e.g. with mutt), and then let the archive rebuild.

IMHO, the LibreOffice lists at FreeDesktop are configured in a wrong 
way, because they allow everyone to post. I'd never ever do so on the 
TDF infrastructure, it's against any good mail practice I know of, but 
the feedback I got when noting that was that "developers want it that 
way". Well... I don't know why, but it seems I have to accept that, and 
we need to live with spam then. :-(
