IMO, documentation.dev can be mapped to ooo-dev. That list was used
for policy and infrastructure discussions, which would fit well on
ooo-dev.

I would like to see user-faq.authors mapped to ooo-userdocs, for
reasons stated earlier, so I shall endeavour to find several
moderators and a core group of list members. The list certainly
fulfills the criterion of discussion on the legacy OOo list.

If anyone reading this note would like to offer to be a moderator,
please speak up!
