What is happening is that the mailing list software (mailman) is adding
the list to the reply-to header not replacing it.  If the sender had a
reply-to header then the mailing list address was added to the Reply-To

I can easily argue both sides of this debate but I think that the current
setting makes the most sense.  The sender gets to decide if their email is
in the reply-to field but the list address is always added by Mailman.

 Thank you all for your patience during this transition.
