Subject OO.o Migration: Mailing Lists
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 02:03:37 GMT
Thanks Paul, that is very helpful.

There's no information here about a change in OO.o list ownerships and who did 
it.  It may have been to provide one of the Oracle members on the Apache OOo 
project a means to prepare for movement.  I don't believe any precipitate 
action is forthcoming.

In order that the current list moderators and others can be kept informed of 
preparations for OO.o migration, can you serve as an intermediary?  It would 
be valuable if you could help ensure that everyone is consulted, informed, and 
not surprised by anything that happens in migration of into 
Apache custody.

 - Dennis

I received a bunch of emails over the weekend advising that I've been
removed as owner of most of the OOo lists... I assumed that this also
referred to moderation, but I've just checked and those emails (to moderate)
are still coming through - so this now seems unlikely.

The email list is still valid, but I'm not sure
who is still subscribed. I was listed as moderator/owner of that list as
well, but now I cannot tell (owner privileges removed, as per above).

It seems that very recently there has been some changes made... I figured
that was in anticipation of some wider scale changes involved with the move
to Apache platform. Happy to answer any queries or questions about what has
happened in the past.
