How come the list software makes it a hassle to reply to just the list? The
CoC specifically states:
"When replying to messages on the mailing list, do not send a carbon copy
(CC) to the original poster unless they explicitly request to be copied."
If this is official Debian policy, then why don't they set the Reply-To
header to be the list? As it is now, every time I reply, I have to manually
edit the addressee list. Hitting Reply only goes to the original poster.
Reply All goes to the poster and the list.
