        *Sigh*. The rule, for Debian lists, is *NO* to send CC's to
 anyone, and is spelled out on the mailing list policy/rules of
 conduct web page. So if you do not know better, the default is _not_
 to send copies.

Going to church does not make a person religious, nor does going to
school make a person educated, any more than going to a garage makes a
person a car.
