That's a field defined (in RFC 2822) as specifying where posts
intended individually to the author ("replies") should be sent. It
would not be good to have such replies sent instead to a public
mailing list.

I suspect Raphael instead wants to specify that public follow-up posts
(not individual replies) should go to debian-devel. The
Mail-Followup-To field is often used for this, but is not a standard
nor widely implemented.
