today, a discussion started on the certification mailing list whether we want to get rid of those mailing list prefixes in the subject, like [libreoffice-announce], [libreoffice-conference] or [tdf-discuss].

This would be helpful in several ways, like DKIM and other e-mail signing tools don't break, plus it looks much better in the mail overview.

However, this depends on how people filter their e-mail. Filtering on the subject line is a *real* bad idea, rather use the List-Post or List-Id header. However, some mail clients don't support that.

So, my question is:
Are there mailing lists where we could get rid of this prefix? What do people think?

I would imagine that for the users list, removing the prefix is a bad idea, while for other lists, it could work pretty well.
