Just a reminder: Oracle's support of the existing servers running 
various systems, including the mailing lists, is being 
removed by Oracle.  That's the root issue we're trying to solve, so it's 
not like the ASF is trying to make things hard!  8-)

In the process of hosting useful mailing lists here on stable and 
long-lived Apache infrastructure, we will be creating a set of lists to 
support the Apache OpenOffice podling's work at creating new AOOo 
releases (like this ooo-dev@ list).  We will have mailing lists to 
support our work, it's just that we'll have far fewer lists that should 
be much better managed than they have been recently at oo.o.

Hope this meta-comment helps explain the bigger picture of why the lists 
are being changed.  Similarly, many websites and services hosted at will be changed, moved, or removed in the somewhat near
