I agree it is a small thing.  I saw it yet again and just wanted to
communicate about it.  Sometimes things are not really simple.

But if Reply-To is a valid non-mailing list address then that  is the
correct one to use.

Is there a control@ command that I could send that would change the
"Reported by" address?  Maybe that is the best thing.  Simply fix it
when things are not handled automatically?  I would be fine with that.

I understand.  At some point I would like to set up my own BTS
instance just to understand the code and how it works.  Then could
maybe make some effort into improving things upstream on the Debian
upstream and then that would flow downstream.  But never enough time.
