Sorry for that. I just pressed "Reply" button and did not
"To:" does not contain address of avr-gcc-list but sender's
( yours, in
this particular case) address.
Now I will know, that I have to replace "To:" field every

Use the "reply all" button, rather than "reply". You can remove
the individual sender's address, since they are already on the
list. Some people find this inconvenient, and everyone makes a
mistake on occasion and forgets to reply to the list, but it's easy
enough when you get used to it and there are good reasons for
having mailing lists configured in this way.
You don't even have to do that. Just hit 'Reply All', type your
response and hit send. The mailing list is set up (and most are this
way) to not send a duplicate response to the person in the 'To' list
if they are subscribed. However, if they are not subscribed to the
list, then it will correctly send the response to the list and the
person who is not subscribed, that way it ensures that they will see
BTW, this is proper procedure for other projects like GCC, Binutils,
GDB, etc. Do 'Reply All' and leave it alone unless you explicitly
need to trim the CC list.
Fair enough. I personally find it slightly more convenient if the extra
lines are trimmed, but perhaps that's because I subscribe via gmane (due
to my convoluted path for incoming email, which causes trouble for some
mailing lists). It is much better to follow the standard procedure for
mailing lists than to try to cater for oddities like me.
