I've a patched mailman that allows you to set the reply-to headers to your mails, indicating that you want replies only to list. See the "edit options" in

I sometimes (well, nowadays probably too often) reply to mails very late, and I always do reply-to-all then, because there's a good chance that the person who originally sent the mail isn't actively reading Dovecot list and would miss the reply otherwise. Also when I'm in other mailing lists I prefer people to Cc me, because I'm not actively reading any of those lists and I could easily miss the reply.

But people are different and want different things. I don't know if there's any good solution to this. Except maybe if everybody always did reply-to-all and people could start configuring their mail clients in a way to hide the private replies if they don't want to see them.

As mentioned, this breaks DKIM. You could create a local Sieve script to add the [Dovecot] subject.
