As opposed to xorg-list at freedesktop.org. I'm happy that you think
-list@ is entirely different to @lists. and is a deal-breaker between
right and wrong, but whatever.
Side note: debian-devel at lists.debian.org.

Reply-To should not (repeat: NOT) ever be touched by the lists.

Great, I'm aware it can be configured this way. Either way, the fact
it's a list is exposed, as it should be. GNOME chooses to expose it
with -list, and that's great. We chose to expose it as @lists. I'd
appreciate it if you could respect this decision.
