Depends on how you're reading/responding.  I'll assume you're using an
email client like Thunderbird, and that you do NOT subscribe in digest form.

Most general way is to use Reply-All, and remove any recipients you
don't want there, but make sure you keep the python-list recipient.

Alternatively, if you're using Thunderbird or another with similar
capability, use Reply-list, which is smart enough to only keep the list

Or, what I used to do, reply, then add the python-list at to the
list of recipients.  That's error prone.

I hope this answers your question.
