Good to get so much positive feedback :-)

This is unfortunate and not desired. There have been too many accidents
where people sent a privat message to a list. Seek in the GRASS, PROJ
GDAL archives for examples...
All (good) mail user agents have a "reply all" button or
"group reply" key which solved the problem.

Probably yes.

Along with the change I'll have "bogofilter" to filter the spam for
*all* lists, not only for mails coming from the bugtracker. This
program works really great.
