The tagging list is probably configured to set Reply-To and this one 
isn't (it's a per list option).

No matter what anybody will tell you (and please, let not have the 
Reply-To for mailing lists flame war yet again) there is no right answer 
as to whether or not to set it. People have been debating it for at 
least twenty years.

Anyway, I just tried gmail, and "reply to all" certainly included dev 
for this message as I would expect. Reply doesn't obviously.
