For the record, I read debian-devel (and a bunch of other Debian lists) via
news.gmane.org, which means that mails from these lists don't enter my email. If
you CC me in replies, they do end up in my email, which means I now have to take
care of stuffing them somewhere or deleting them.

Please let's just leave it as it is and not CC people. Most proper MUA's have a
"Reply to mailing list" option, which you should be using, instead of "Reply
All". And if your MUA doesn't have such an option, it isn't a proper MUA, so use
something else or manually remove the CC. This is just about as irritating as
people using broken MUAs that break threads.

Kind regards,
