This kinda boils down to preference.  Personally (I currently use mu4e
but regardless of the client) I like to reply to everyone participating
in the thread plus the list, and prefer everybody else do so.  That’s
because that means I get replies to my messages in my inbox, so I don’t
have to read the entire list all the time (and I only subscribed for
this particular discussion, normally I’m not really active here).  Some
say this creates duplication, tho my email client seems to handle that
well, not showing stuff from my inbox again when I look at the mailing

TBH, this is why a piece of software like Gitlab or Github is superior
to this emailing setup.  You get to choose which discussions you want to
follow, or what news to follow, whether you want that stuff in your
inbox, and all that stuff.
