We're talking about what would
forward to.  We could forward it to and the
user would not know it.  They only see what they send an email to:

If someone wants to subscribe to a list to work with the project, then
the place to start is ooo-dev.  If a sufficient number of them (far
more than zero) say they need a list to work on documentation, then
they can make that proposal.
