I think the fr project is an important one, has a bunch of mailing  
lists, and has a lot of subscribers.

But 15 lists is too much, indeed :)  After several years of practice,  
I can say the most important are

- users (help, bugs detection, announces)
- discuss ( everything else)
- prog : the API, Basic , Python ..and so on

dev in fr was never used for development, and can wait ( ooo-dev is  
perfect )

The educ one is an anomaly, and would be better in the Education  

So, a first wish could be : keep the 3 mentionned above at the  

The next issue is to find volunteers : once the spam issue fixed,  
I'll ask for volunteers, and with the feedback, I'll be able to give  
you an answer :)
