But why the hell the list manager doesn't set reply-to header to the
list?

It should not be set. Everyone that managed a mailing-list long enough knows what happens when Reply-To is set to the list and the vacation season comes. Someone sets those automatic replies telling you that they are at some beach and will return a month later. The response goes to the list and starts an infinite loop.

Any decent mailing list software will filter out these messages.
Get a better mailing list software if that happens.

I'm on dozens of mailing list that _have_ the reply-to field set and this doesn't happen there.

That's not the reason for not setting the Reply-To. The reason is that the poster cannot set it.

That said -- I don't care about the configuration this list, as I read it via gmane-NNTP anyhow, and there I have proper Newsgroup functionality. :-)

Cheers,
Joachim
