This is problimatic when a maintainer vanishes or drops a bug half way
through. I'd rather see "to the submitter and the maintainer unless the
maintainer sent the mail", which works in both this case and the one

As implemented this is problimatic for those of us who read
debian-bugs-dist (only in a semi-automated fashion nowadays though). But
"to the maintainer unless the maintainer sent the mail" handles this
case and the second one above.

Well, if it's narrowed down to the two cases I've mentioned above, it's
sort oflike doing a list reply vs a personal reply. Although I'm not
sure which maps better to which. Anyway, should be possible to set up
the headers so that works in mail clients.
