I find a lot of mailing lists mentioned under "People".

This is probably caused by munged Reply-To: headers in the list messages.

We should ignore Reply-To: values equal to List-Post: (and maybe we need a Reply-To: munging tracking bug).

Reproducible: Always

It's not the Reply-To header; gloda actually ignores that for the reason you mention.  It's that the message is "To" the mailing list that gets it shown.

My plan is to do what you suggest in terms of the "To" header and replace the list entry with the person the message is implicitly to.  Which is to say if Alice writes a message to a mailing list and Bob replies, then the "To" becomes Alice.

"implicitly to"? Why do we need that at all? 

And by the way: I had not understood that "People" concerned To: in addition to From:. Should this really be combined into one facet?

Is there already a bug on that one, which IMO is a separate issue?
