No, it is the way that *should* be expected.

Notwithstanding head buried in sand RFCs, openSUSE lists are public
discussion lists that authors direct compositions to so that the
listserv can send them to subscribers. The listserv is the sender WRT

sent in public, and because they are sent in public, it is only
natural for their responses to be public as well. Yet, the listserv
thwarts such behavior being automatic in favor of assuming replies
should be sent privately to the author instead of the sender.

Reply to list is the expected behavior on every other list in the world,

nonstandard configuration, and the usual trolls come out in droves and
flame anyone who dares suggest its just wrong headed.
