Retention is a good point but often conversation start after some of those 
automated messages. Not so easy to keep apart...

With two mail lists there is a risk of ignoring some of the messages that 
otherwise would come to your attention when everything team-related is in one 

Arguably most of our communication happens in bug reports and they are not 
segregatable from automated messages. Splitting mail lists into two will not 
eliminate the need to monitor both and one of them will be low volume but not 
bugs-related? I don't see the point...

Convenient sorting may be possible with headers like "X-Debian-Package" and

Some time ago I've started to use local IMAP mail server as a mail storage.
Regardless of what email client I might be using at a time, I can now sort 
everything using unified Sieve filters. This was quite difficult to set up
