Please forgive us for not having answered the mail yet.
As I'm not someone that gets the info at fosdem.org mails I am not able to
respond to that mail.
But if you want, feel free to send it to me at cvandeplas at fosdem.org
I try to answer all the mails within the 2 days.

Concerning the spam that got into this list.
We are running a tweaked version of spamassassin (with many plugins to
make the hitratio as hig as possible). Currently the hit-ratio is very
high, as only some spams are getting trough. FYI : We are currently
receiving around 14 000 spams a month on the FOSDEM domain. The server
admins are monitoring this spam and also the ham to check if we can lower
the false-negatives. But as you should know, this is not an easy task.

As we want to enable outsiders to send questions to this list, it is
unfortunately not possible to have a spam-ratio of 0%.

Hope you understand.
