specifically, if you're using mutt, you can specify these in your
very own ~/.muttrc file--
subscribe debian-user debian-www debian-doc
for whichever lists you subscribe to -- and then, when reading a
list message in mutt, you can press
L -- (cap L) reply to the public list only
r -- reply to originator or the message, privately
g -- reply to everyone in the address group (originator, and list)
