There still seems to be an issue with it putting [Wine] in the subject
line. I think this is because it expects the prefix to really be
[wine-users]. Maybe we should change the prefix.

If I had my way I'd drop the prefix entirely. I filter off of the
message headers, but I'm sure that would upset some mailing list
Personally I don't see good technical reasons for such prefixes. As far as I

know all popular e-mail clients have filters that are capable of sorting
incoming mail without need of prefixes in the subject. And many mailing lists
don't have any kind of prefix in the subject anyway. IMHO, prefix can be
safely removed. If someone use prefix in the subject field they should fix
their configuration. BTW, wine-devel and wine-patches don't use prefix so I'm
wonder why wine-users use it...

please dont.
many web mail clients dont offer the ability to use List-ID as a filter criteria.

another point is,
when use the answer function instead of answer to all,
wine-users_at_winehq_dot_org isnt present in the mail adresses.
(I would have sent this mail only to L.Rahyen, had to add the list manually.)
