But the rule on this list is to reply only to the list, never to both:
Official FAQ, 2013:

Q1. Why do my replies go to the original poster and not the list?
A1. We do not "munge" the mail headers by inserting
a "Reply-To: opensuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx"
because it makes it more difficult subscribers to handle the mail
the way they want to. Your mail client probably has a "reply"
function as well as a "reply to all" or "reply to list" one; Please
use the latter if you want you message to go to the list and not
just to the original poster.

Also, please don't complain about this on the list, it has
been discussed many, many, many times in the past already.

For background information see e.g.

Its good you quoted the rule book to her Carlos, but because you followed
the rules and didn't send it direct, she won't see it for two weeks, so we
have two more weeks of this thread before she replies.


So did you :-P

Linda: I've groused about the list routing in the past too. Everybody on
this list wants replys to the list. Everybody jumps your bones if you reply
direct. So why do the list managers persist with this crazy routing?
Who knows, but heels are totally dug in at this point and the managers are
just toying with us.

The reason is also in that FAQ item I posted ;-)

However, the list manager is reading this thread. And replying, too.
