My mailer software (alpine in this case) makes the important distinction
between personal email and list server email, and I assume that is also
true of other mailer software. And the cmake and cmake-devel mailing
list software default configuration supported this distinction by sending
all mail to a list server you were subscribed to by default, and only
using personally addressed email when the user was specifically
Cc’d by a poster.
So the issue is that cmake discourse mailing-list mode currently
destroys this important distinction by personally addressing every
email to users.
To fix this CMake discourse issue, please implement a set of reasonable
rules (such as specific mention of a user’s name or a reply to a
specific user or a Cc to a specific user) where personally addressed
email will be used, and otherwise use a list server mail address
(which mailing-list mode users are automatically subscribed to).
If the fix for this CMake discourse misfeature is not planned any time
soon, I would like to transfer this discussion to the CMake discourse bug
tracker. But I cannot find that so could you please let me know where
