Right now, Apache OO.o is exactly that. All discussion right now are
about how to get the project here in the first place.

I'm not saying it will *never* be right to have multiple lists, I'm
saying don't do it too early.

Don't build an environment modelled on what OOo *was*, build it on
what OO.o *is*.

In other words, the right reason for creating a separate list is
because we *need* it, not because OO.o *had* it.

When a new list would get 10 mails a day, every day, then it is worth
creating a new one. At this point it is impossible to predict which
those lists will be.

Note I said "Be careful about splitting lists too early", that's not
the same as "never".
