Seems the mailing list is not configured the reply-to variable to the
mailing list by default.

If you read carefully you could see that I already knew all that. I
was asking for Pidgin Bonjour documentation and not Bonjour
documentation. Which is why I was addressing this mailing list.

This is my point. A more specific questions goes on the lines of:
- How do I create an account.
- What do I need to be running t make the account work (you said to
install avahi-discover) but I think this is more complex than flipping
a switch on the preferences. IE seems this is a gtk app and I use KDE.
- What is the process to discover users, is there a 'scan' tool or
does users just show up on my buddy list.
- I see that the users show up on a bonjour group. Is this the default?
