Hi Regina,

hm, that's the age-old debate on ReplyTo-munging (or not) - see
http://woozle.org/~neale/papers/reply-to-still-harmful.html for a
somewhat nice writeup.

Since this list is unmoderated, and ~everyone can post without being
subscribed, at least I have the habit of replying both to poster and
to list - since I usually cannot tell if the poster is subscribed or

If you're subscribed, and you don't want extra copies, just set a
"Reply-To: libreoffice at lists.freedesktop.org" header. Most mailers
(and people) adhere to that.
