This is standard for all Ubuntu ML. This is a topic that comes up
periodically an all mail lists it seems and someone won't like it no matter
which choice you pick.
You are free to set the reply to in your messages to the list if you care
to. That will give you what you are after for at least messages you send.
This is a lose, lose proposition for mailing list admins.
I do wish we had a clean rule (like Debian does) that you should send just
to the list unless people request it.
