Here's a snippet from a recent discussion:

No. You don't need to be on the sclug list *and* the sclugr list I put a
script in place that should take care of that.  

If that's not working can you let me know.


Personally, I'm still using my patch as it's working and I don't really
have time to faff around with the subscriptions. It'd be great if the
default was to include a Reply-To, I'm not sure what the reasons are
for it's omission - better off following that up with Tom.
