I propose the issues@* lists are bundled in one single instead.

In active times, the volume on the general all-bugs list was unbearable
and even on some issues@*.oo.o lists was very high, especially for the
main applications and l10n project, so at the end maybe 5 or
6 additional ooo-issues-*@i.a.o will be needed where people can
subscribe to their area of interest.

Makes sense.

Any opinions on creating one ooo-issues@i.a.o for now and maybe
additional ones later as needed?
