Unfortunatly the way the list is setup, if you click on Reply it
addresses the person directly. If you click Reply All then it again
addresses the person directly and CCs the list. Its very
counter-intuative for a mailing list to work this way, but it seems that
the GTK list are all like this and they like things this way. I pointed
this out before, because there are lots of down sides to this, one of
which is that alot of people simply click on Reply and their wisdom is
forever lost to the list, because the email is sent directly to the
person who composed the original email. This results in lots of
questions being asked over and over again because the answer doesnt
exist in the archives...only the questions.
P.S. i'm subscribed to the list, you can just reply to the list, so i don't
get two copies.
gtk-app-devel-list mailing list
gtk-app-devel-list gnome org
Does anyone know why this is the default behavior? Generally when I
reply to something in on a mailing list, I want the entire list to see
it. Since the person that sent the email is generally subscribed to the
list their is no reason to send it to both that person and the list. So
I have to click on Reply All and then remove the personal address, and
copy the mailing list address from CC to TO. Thats alot of work, just
to make sure that someone doesnt get duplicate email. I guess this is
why questions alway get 2 replies, because it just easier to click on
Reply All and let the person who is being replied to (often not the
person who needs to see it) deal with the extra email.
