Considering how repulsive ooo-dev is for folks who are not developers, I don't 
think piling onto ooo-dev is providing a service in this case.  ooo-user might 
work, though.  But neither are inviting for folks who are specifically 
interested in the documentation and would subscribe to such a list.  I would 
expect traffic on ooo-documentation to be comparable to that for

Rather than creating another list on speculation that it might get
sufficient traffic, could we just forward the legacy address to
ooo-dev?  If it ends up generating sufficient traffic then it will be
easy enough to create a dedicated list for it.  But I'm not in favor
of creating a new list for it at this point.
