+1, collecting workflows people use for dealing with ml would be good.
I am new to such a high-volume list, and I have tried several things.
Now I have a few filters in gmail that mark threads I am not
interested in, but they all still go into my main inbox. I then mute
irrelevant threads. Once you did the first round of mutes, it becomes
easier. I spend 10-20 minutes daily to get through all of the threads.

I see a very marginal benefit in adding more lists.
