Ian, Manfred, and Luis - you are all on the proposal and on the PPMC (assuming the paperwork
is done.) and you sign up for the private list.

Joe is a project Mentor.

If a group of you and others wants to work on the project by supporting the different language
communities then please start. Just keep the ooodev list informed. This page is a little old,
but the Jakatra/ASF story might illuminate:

The OOOUSER wiki should be coming soon and it will be there for you to use.

AFAIK that wiki can allow contributions and certainly comments by the user community. That
will also need moderation.

In addition, Gavin McDonald in Infrastructure stepped forward while I was querying Infra about
Bugzilla vs. JIRA and asked about migrating the user forums.

Everyone has their own special "itch", if user support is yours please "scratch."
