I'd like to reply to a thread from a mailman list (pytables-users) from Gmail, but I'm not sure exactly how. Do I just hit reply the manually edit the subject line and copy/paste anything relevant from the message I'm replying to? Will Mailman automatically detect that the message belongs in the same thread?

Another option if you're using Gmail is this:
Gmail strips the + symbol and the text between it and the @ symbol when routing the message.

Now, when you see something in a digest message to which you care to respond, just go to the label corresponding to the individual message that would have come through and reply to the main thread you care about for proper message threading!
Your mail filter will probably need to look something like this:
You'll need to replace "listname" and "example.com" above with the name of the list and the mailing domain involved with the mailman mailing list.
