This is not addressed at me, but I also had to learn the hard way
- some lists but not all automatically exclude subscribers if
  they are listed in To: or Cc:.
- most regulars do not make use of Mail-Followup-To: (or
  its use is not consistent).

I generally try to Cc: the reporter on bug-* lists and on lists where
I know the former happens.
