I thought this was a strange behavior for the list messages when I realized
that I had replied, accidentally, to Stas personally and not the list. I
subscribe to six lists, and mod_perl is the *only* one where my email reader
automatically replies to the sender and not the list. All the other lists
automatically put the list email address in the Reply-to: of the distributed
posts, thus making replying to the list the default. Couldn't that be
changed for modperl?
