The convention on this list appears to be
 to: a person
 cc: the list
so that's what I do. My response is on the list, but some mail systems do
various things like:
 . deliver only one copy of messages (which could explain your case,
   where you received just the personal copy),  . refuse to deliver messages
they recognise as coming from the sender
   (which can lead people to keep reposting a message to a list
   because they think it never arrives).

Fair enough. There are two things to watch out for:

. the headings are left/right paired, so you can get gaps below them.
  (I use this as a positive feature with Anglican chants, using opus
  for the composer and meter for any necessary annotation, thereby
  ensuring that the composer is close-set and a lengthy annotation
  will not collide with it.)

. There are LP headers that find their way into the PDF metadata, and
  they might end up mislabelled there. Not a worry for most people,
  and there are probably ways to edit such metadata anyway.
