        Should you check the bug-gnu-emacs@ archive, you’d see my
        follow-ups being replied to just fine.  And that’s exactly what
        I’ve meant.

        Mailman can also be configured so that it requires moderator’s
        approval for submissions from non-subscribers, so it makes sense
        to subscribe to a list even when you do /not/ want to receive
        any messages from it.  Note that it’s still possible to read
        many of such lists elsewhere.

        Now, you subscribe to the list – for your messages to go
        through; you disable delivery – so you can read the list via
        Gmane…  And you still get the traffic – thanks to Cc:.

        Not that it bothers me much; my point is rather that duplicate
        suppression is of no value here.  And no, I know of no way to
        configure Gnus so that it suppresses the messages from INBOX
        which are also seen in nntp+news.gmane.org:gmane.emacs.bugs.

        Actually, I /do/ Cc: the submitter when I suggest a fix or
        workaround to try, or when requesting for more information.
        (Provided that the submitter doesn’t also happen to be one of
        the emacs-devel@ regulars.)

        Care to suggest a fix?
