The way I've been doing it for many years doesn't work anymore (I missed notification of a PR because it looks like github sends me one copy of a notification with List-Id set even though it shows me on the CC line).

I could do matching on list-id but add an exception for when I'm CC'd (which may work), but could also miss some mail.

In Gmail, I have added to the filter something like the following -
subject:(macports-tickets Digest)
list:"macports-tickets at" -{ijackson at}

Even I used to not get PR replies, mentions, etc. in my Inbox unless I
click on the folder.
Then I added a "-{<my_email_id>}" along with list-id and not if I am
mentioned or part of the
github PR conversation, I get the email in my mailbox rather than the folder.
