I was not aware of this ! I have procmail + junkfilter set up (with paranoid
settings, pari and I receive _a lot_ of junk mail, about 50 messages a day),
and these have been filtered out.  I've just checked that the archive on the
WWW site did not contain them either: pari-dev-1423 is missing, so probably
some automated spam filtering is applied there as well.

I've sent an email to


and indeed got the spam you refered to. So it's not a clever forgery. I am
Cc-ing the list owner to see what can be done about this.

Thanks for reporting this!
