You can achieve this using group parameters, e.g. I have the following
parameters for this list:

((to-address . "debian-user@lists.debian.org")
 (to-list . "debian-user@lists.debian.org")
 (subscribed . t))

This ensures that follow-ups and new posts go the list and
Mail-Followup-To is set.  See (Info "(gnus) Group Parameters") for more
information.  Note that you should reply with follow-up (bound to "F")
and not reply-all (bound to "S W") if you want to reply to the list
