Doesn't seem at all strange to me. There are three ways you can do this
kind of thing:
Alias lists: Just set up an alias which is expanded to the list of
addresses you need. Nice and simple, not at all flexible.
Smail mailing lists: Basically a text file which contains the addresses
of the people who you want to expand mail to. About as simple as using
addresses, but a lot more localised; you can even set things up so that
a non-root user can administer the list.
Majordomo: Immensely flexible and powerful; allows people to subscribe
and unsubscribe to the list automatically without human intervention,
can be remote-controlled; way over the top for what you want.
I'd recommend adding an alias or a smail list (check the smail
documentation for details on those).
Hope this helps...
