I know it is late to complain, but I've just tried to update my filter.
First you can see the I'm subscribed via a gmail address. I don't download the msgs but work with them directly at gmail.com. I suspect that there are a lot of us doing that on this list, but I have not paid that much attention to the various subscribers domains.
gmail has very limited filtering cabability. In the past I filtered on subject; [SLE].
Without testing I assumed I could change that to [opensuse] and all would be well. Unfortunately gmail ignores the  chars and is finding opensuse in any subject line. I subscribe to a number of lists which might have opensuse in the subject line. Specifically when I applied this rule to my e-mail archive it picked up dozens of old non-SLE msgs and tagged them as SLE.
Earlier proposals of opensuse-en are sounding even better to me because it would provide a more unusual filter item in the subject line. Note that for gmail users all we care about is what the pretag in the subject says. The details in the xmailinglist header entry are not a concern to gmail users, so there is no need to change that aspect, just the subject pretag.
