Already, the item:

is now reading:
In our case, this is not a matter of etiquette: the mail server doesn't
handle it. If you want to send the same message to more than one Mandriva
list, you'll have to send it to them individually. (The gory detail is that
the server sends all copies of the mail to the list that is listed first in
your To:/CC: fields.) Still, please do avoid it and keep any particular
discussion restricted to one list only, for the sanity of all concerned.

I just added the last sentence.
