That doesn't sound good.
If the prefix isn't stripped out, this mail will get subject "Re: [Project
Owners] I'm not bored",
but messages sent to the newsgroup will get subject "Re: I'm not  bored".
When there is news2mail forwarding, it will probably be changed to "[Project
Owners] Re: I'm not bored".
And a reply to that by mail will include another "Re: " up front...

I think mailman should maybe handle the subject lines to always strip the
prefix from anywhere in the subject line, and then put the prefix up front
in the mail?

Where can we put out feature requests for mailman?

No one appears to have noticed; probably because of the above.
