[liberationtech] Please Vote on "Reply to" Question

I vote that the list not munge the Reply-to header.

Some call this "reply-to-poster", but it really means leave Reply-to
however the original poster set it.  If OP set it to the list, that's
fine; usually the OP sets it to their preferred personal address, of
course.

http://producingoss.com/en/mailing-lists.html#reply-to has all the
references I know of on this ancient and well-exercised debate :-).

Best,
