I guess quibbling about CCs is a great way to disguise the fact that you
just stuck your foot in your mouth about debsigs, eh?

It has long been informal policy, at least, to set Mail-Followup-To for
posting to these lists if you don't want replies.  mutt, which I use,
has no "reply to list" key if you do not set that.  Moreover, MUAs which
aggregate messages from multiple lists into a single folder can make it
very difficult and time-consuming to sort out the assumptions and
preferences for each individual poster in each individual list.  That is
what Mail-Followup-To is for.

There is a standard for Mail-Followup-To.  A quick Google turns it up.
