Sorry for my ignorance, but I've never edited email headers before and
didn't find any relevant help on Google. Could you please give some more
details about how to do what you're referring to, or perhaps point me to a
link that would explain more about it? (FYI, I read the Python mailing list
on Google Groups, and reply to posts in Thunderbird, sending them to the
Python-list email address.)

The simple answer is: You don't have to edit headers at all. If you
want something to be part of the same thread, you hit Reply and don't
change the subject line. If you want something to be a spin-off
thread, you hit Reply and *do* change the subject. If you want it to
be a brand new thread, you don't hit Reply, you start a fresh message.
Any decent mailer will do the work for you.

Replying is more than just quoting a bunch of text and copying in the
subject line with "Re:" at the beginning. :)

set up a newsgroup in Thunderbird from gmane.comp.python.general.

That doesn't sound right to me. Surely you set up the newgroup news.gmane.org and then subscribe to the mailing lists, blog feeds or whatever it is that you want?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask what you can do for our language.
