I can only speak for the two active lists at documentation (dev and authors), but they are
quite active when we are working on docs for a release but very quiet at other times. And
authors is now further skewed because I've been asking people to leave that list for a new
list at ODFAuthors, in preparation for shutdown of the OOo lists.

I have no objection to the general recommendation of list
consolidation, directing all
user-related lists to ooo-users and project-related lists to ooo-dev.

I think there is merit in establishing a list, sooner rather than
later, specifically for user documentation content producers (writers,
editors, indexers), to encourage people (especially any newcomers to
the user-docs effort) to use an Apache user-docs list instead of the
ODFAuthors list. But that's a topic for its own thread, I think.
