Which possibly only goes to show how broken that header is. you could have 
noted the request to be CCed in the body of the mail (which is what I 
always do when posting to lists I'm not subscribed to).

However, in this case I'll take the blame. I happen to read that list 
through a news reader and did not allow for M-F-T headers. I will make sure 
I do check for M-F-T in the future. My apologies.

I agree it has been controversial. However, "wrong" is just your opinion.
My opinion is that it is "right" for Debian's lists.

Right, but that argument works both ways. You are obviously to stubborn and 
inept to use the "reply-to-list" function of your software.

I personally use kmail [1], which unfortunately does not support setting 
M-F-T. However, it does a great job of recognizing list mail and correctly 
doing reply-to-list automatically.


[1] Note that I did _not_ use kmail for the post to d-www. If I had, it 
would have respected the M-F-T header.
