With Mutt, I use this:

send-hook ~Cdebian-user@lists.debian.org my_hdr "Reply-To: debian-user@lists.debian.org"

There is certainly an extension to Mozilla to do the same thing with a
few dozen clics.

That means you need to remember and take notice, each time you reply to
a mail, whether you are replying to a list or not. I personally reject
any solution with that requirement, since there are solutions without.

These thoughts caused me to consider an even scarier hypothesis:

It's entirely possible that the authors of Jitsi themselves would not be
able to build it from sources.

Tomas's point is "give the benefit of the doubt", but at this point
there is not much doubt left.
