I just read the other email which started this discussion about gmail
and think I understand the problem.

The problem is with the list.

I am on 15 tech mailing lists, and this is the only one which, if I in
gmail say "reply to" replys to the sender and not to the list.

I ****NEVER*** want to reply to the individual when responding to a
post on the list.

If I say "reply to all" it puts the senders address in the "to" field
and the openmoko address in the "cc" field. I strongly suspect this is
the cause of unwanted cc's.

Again, out of 15 lists, this only happens for me on the openmoko list.
Now I have read that some consider this a feature. And perhaps there
are benefits I don't understand. but with 25-50% of the tech mailing
list readers using gmail, having a list "feature" that causes this
kind of a problem should probably be reconsidered. I do not believe
this is something that can be worked around in gmail other than by
manually fixing every send to this list (which I do).

I would ask the openmoko team to consider fixing the mailing list
parameters in order to fix this problem.
