Nice idea. I received one of the notices sent out today (to 
[marketing-ooocon-discuss], which is actually more a project-related 
list than a marketing-related one, since it's meant for the Conference; but it doesn't matter) and indeed it is quite 
long, so if there is no hurry I'd support the two-steps approach.

The link to 
was split in two lines (by the mailing list management program, I 
assume) in the message I received; a short URL will probably work better.

As I said, I'll translate the notice into Italian and take care of 
migrating the Italian lists (all 12 of them, not only the 4 that are in 
the top 100). I added my name to the wiki page. I'm happy with the plan 
to move N-L lists as the last step, since we need a communication 
channel open all the time, so I wouldn't touch the lists until the forum 
migration is complete.
