+<p>We ask all mailing list participants to observe <a href="">these
guidelines</a>. </p>
+<p>Specifically note the request "Use sensible and concise email subject headings".
 On our high-traffic
+lists, especially ooo-dev, we encourage the use of email subject tags that indicate
+the topic of your post.  Consistent use of such tags makes it more likely that
+your post will be read by subscribers most interested in that topic.  It also faciliates
+sorting and filtering by email inbox rules.</p>
+<p>Some subject tags often seen on ooo-dev include:</p>
+<li>[www] for posts related to the website</li>
+<li>[Repo] for posts related to the source code repository</li>
+<li>[download] for posts related to the release download and mirroring infrastruture</li>
+<p>Other useful topic tags can be found by observing traffic on the list or by looking
at the list archives.</p>
+<p>In addition to the topic subject tags, there are also tags used to indicate a request:</p>
+<li>[DISCUSS] indicates a rough idea is being floated, and input is welcome</li>
+<li>[PROPOSAL] indicates a specific proposal is being made, and often that Lazy Consensus
is being sought.</li>
+<li>[VOTE] indicates that a formal vote is being called.  This is rare.</li>
+<p>Note: it is common for a topic tag and an action tag to be combined, e.g.:</p>
+<li>[PROPOSAL][Repo] Migration of legacy repository to SVN</li>
+<li>[DISCUSS][download] What are our options of mirroring legacy releases?</li>
