judging from the first days of feedback on the reply-to mangling change, my
proposal would be that switch back to the old behaviour on the following
lists *only* for the moment:

Please don't!

Stick to your first decision and let it run at least for two weeks that way.

Changing it back now again for some lists only leads to more confusion.

Those are the lists I see most people really complaining and ranting, and
having severe issues due to the mail clients they use.

There is really no mailclient that fails at replying to the list. They
may not heave an explicit "Reply (only) to list", but every mailclient
has "reply to all". And people should just use that.

Do you share that feeling and would support the above proposal?


The change of removing reply-to was introduced without prior
announcement (IMHO the biggest mistake about it).

It just is a different way of managing lists that people will get used to.

If the LO lists would have started with that setting to begin with,
there wouldn't be loud complaining now.

It is true that some people now get duplicate mail, but only those
actually participating in a discussion, and there it can be beneficial
for some, and for some others (gmail users) there is no difference at

So have it settle two weeks, then let the corresponding projects have
a vote they organize themselves. Have that vote presented to you and
if there is a *clear* preference, switch back.
