Please let me say that a wide reply doesn't contain the author
of an original mail in the recipient list is a bug.  To exclude
an invalid address from a wide reply is not a feature; that is
a rare exception that the poison is efficacious.  Please imagine,
a wide reply to your mail doesn't go to you only:

(You send a mail)

From: Thierry Volpiatto
To: emacs-devel
Cc: Lars
Reply-To: emacs-devel

(I reply to your mail)

-> From: Katsumi Yamaoka
   To: emacs-devel
   Cc: Lars
   Reply-To: emacs-devel

(You reply to my reply that you happen to find in Gmane)

-> From: Thierry Volpiatto
   To: emacs-devel
   Cc: Lars
   Reply-To: emacs-devel

(I don't notice it)

Though the emacs-devel list doesn't add Reply-To, not a few lists
do it.  I don't think that GitHub doesn't use a valid address in
the From header is a bad manner.  But it should have a valid
Reply-To if it allows a mail reply, or should have something like
a link to a web form.

Have you sent it already?  If so, it may be delayed or...
Anyway I don't need it now, maybe.

Unfortunately it's a regression. :(

Sorry for my further poor English.

I omitted a relative pronoun in front of "a mailing list server".
Though I don't know whether it is barbarous, it is taught in Japan's
school. ;-p
