No; in fact, Derrick's point is that 8 mailing lists do _not_ all care...
- openafs-announce and arla-announce don't care, and you shouldn't be
trying to post things to those lists that are not "announcements".
And by that I mean official announcements from people authorized to
post to those lists.
- email@example.com and heimdal-discuss don't care; those are Kerberos
related lists, and Kerberos doesn't use Rx.
- Given what you asked, openafs-info doesn't care either -- that list is
for discussions relevant to AFS users and administrators; topics of
interest only to developers and hackers belong on -devel.
- I don't think info-afs cares about _anything_ any more -- it's a fairly
dead list, and the workshop announcements are sent there only for
So, that leaves a grand total of two lists that might care. Maybe.
The point is, wide-replying to an announcement is generally considered
impolite, because such replies typically reach far more people than care
about your question/comment/request/whatever. So, please don't do it.
