Reply-To's while mailing debian-bugs, again !
Somehow a message with the headers below arrived at debian-bugs-done.
Because the Reply-To included firstname.lastname@example.org, the bug tracking
system sent itself a copy of the `you have closed this report'
message, causing that ack message to appear on debian-devel. (I also
got a `thank you for your further information' message about the ack.)
Folks, please stop setting the Reply-To field to include debian-bugs.
The bug tracking system knows how to set reply-to's, if appropriate.
PS: It's just as well that I've given some thought to the way messages
are handled around debian-bugs, otherwise things like this could
easily cause mail loops ...
