Edited by Zoltan Reizinger:
Please read this note in its entirety.  It contains important information related
to this mailing list, its migration to the Apache Software Foundation, and the steps you must
take to ensure continuous access to the list.

As you may have heard, Oracle contributed the project to Apache in June. 
All new projects at Apache start in the "Incubator", a special part of Apache where new projects
("Podlings") and their communities are given special attention by Apache "mentors" as they
learn about Apache, ensure that the source code meets Apache's license requirements, and work
toward their initial Apache release.  

In parallel with the coding efforts needed before we can publish Apache 3.4.0,
the Apache community, working with the Apache Infrastructure team, is migrate
the many legacy websites and other online services formerly hosted by Sun/Oracle
on to Apache servers.    This has been a huge effort and we are
showing good progress in many areas.   You can read more about the current
status of the migration effort on this wiki page:  []

Among the services hosted by Oracle on the legacy OOo servers are over 300 mailing lists,
including the <insert-legacy-mailing-list-name> mailing list you are reading now.&nbsp;
As part of the migration to the Apache servers we will be switching from the SYMPA mailing
list manager to ezmlm, which the rest of Apache uses.&nbsp; In order to preserve your
subscription to the list, you will need to resubscribe to the new list address, per the following

# Send an email to <subscribe-address-for-new-list>.&nbsp; This should be done from
the email account where you want to receive the list messages.
# This will generate a confirmation email which will be sent to your email address.&nbsp;
You will need to reply to the confirmation email in order to complete your subscription to
the new list.
# To send posts to the new list, you will send to the following address: <post-address-for-new-list>
# And if you ever want to unsubscribe to the new list, you can do so by sending an email to

We invite and encourage you to follow the above steps and to participate in Apache
project.&nbsp; If you have any questions, feel free to post as responses to this note,
or send a question to


# We recommend that you do not subscribe via a legacy email address.&nbsp;
It is uncertain at this point whether these addresses will be supported in the future.
# Archives of the legacy mailing lists are available here:&nbsp; []
# Archives of the new mailing lists will be available here:&nbsp; []
# If you prefer to access the list via GName, please post a request on the new list and we
will try to accommodate you.
