Yes - unfortunately most opensuse lists have the Reply-To: set to the list adress :-(

It is the most that annoys me ;-) If all lists set the REPLY-TO, it
would be ok, and if all do not set it, ok. But this is just inconsistent.

I'm all for Reply-To headers. Especially on mailing lists where newbies ask questions. In my experience, they tend to take futher discussion offline after someone answers their mail to the list. People searching the archives will never know the solution and the unfortunate person sending the first reply is going to support the original poster for the rest of his life (ok, that's a bit exaggerated).

Very much seconded.
A mailing list reply has to go back to the mailing list by default, by this and a lot more reasons.
