Edited by Rob Weir:
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 (OOo) 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 migrating
the many legacy OOo websites and other online services formerly hosted by Sun/Oracle onto
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;
In order to preserve your subscription to the list, you will need to resubscribe to the new
list address, per the following instructions:

# Send an email to <subscribe-address-for-new-list>. 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. You will
need to reply to the confirmation email in order to complete your subscription to the new
# 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. 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. 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 Gmane, please post a request on the new list and we
will try to accommodate you.
