[Bf-committers] Reducing email overhead

I also prefer the change to 'reply-to goes to sender, and reply to all goes 
to the group'.

Currently it is difficult to send a mail to the sender, and if you reply you 
can make the mistake to send to all.
Other way around would be that you want to send the mail to all, but only 
the sender gets it. That can be easier fixed (re-send) then getting that 
unwanted email back :)

I prefer to stay with 1 list, no splitting: it's nice to have discussion 
centered on this mailinglist.
