The reply-to was set in almost all mailing lists with the old server. During
the migration I kept the Reply-To for all lists, I didn't notice that
gentoo-dev wasn't using it.
I agree that reply-to munging is a bad idea and I tried removing it from
gentoo-user receiving a lot of flames because of that, see also this bug for
something related about this topic:
I'm prefectly happy with removing our reply-to header (and leaving
user_defined one if any) if the userbase of this ml is happy to deal without
