OK.  It's not necessary to bother Terry.  If we have a way to contact
them via the user page, then that is sufficient.  One of us can send
them a note, tell them that the wiki is in the process of moving over
to Apache, say that their admin/moderator experience would be valued
in the new project and say that if they would like to continue in
their current roles they can express that interest to the PPMC via the
ooo-private list.

I'll volunteer to send those notes.

Did you have any opinion on the ooo-* list aspect of this?  Are we at
the point where we need a ooo-web or ooo-site list to track
conversations related to the numerous online services the project will
soon have?  That will allow the ooo-dev participants to preserve some
focus and attention on the code.
