Kmail is marking this email as possible spam but my ISP actually marked it as spam and moved it into the Spam folder. :)
Kmail's reason is:-
This email contains a link which reads as 'https://download.gnome.org/sources/libxml2/2.9/%5C' in the text, but actually points to 'https://download.gnome.org/sources/libxml2/2.9'. This is often the case in scam emails to mislead the recipient
Reasonable confusion. %5C shows it thinks there's a backslash character '' that it has translated ('man ascii' to see ASCII hexadecimal code is 0x5C).
If you whiz down the email you'll find the line in the text and there is a backslash character, which denotes line continutation and on the next line it begins ' libxml2-2.9.13.news'.
I guess a formatting script somewhere has been very conservative with the line length of the Changelog, causing a genuine URL to be split over two lines, and two sets of anti-spam heuristics have thought it smelt iffy.
I'd chalk that up as a win for the computers, I think. Or even credit their programmers, if you still think we're in charge ;-)
