The announce list is intentionally configured that way.  It always
sets the Reply-To header to point to the discuss list.

Iris -- Could you please clarify the voting instructions to say
explicitly that votes should go to the discuss list, and that the
announce list is configured to make this happen automatically (well,
at least for people whose mail programs honor the Reply-To header).
