I always consider this in non-advanced-software-mailing-lists (). I
expect people managing such a great software like Subversion can
afford to configure a mailing list manager to obfuscate emails. And if
you can't, just tell it somewhere if possible.

Maybe it was just a chance, but it seems to me to have received more
spam in these days (I subscribed some days ago)... but maybe it's too
soon to be related to this.
