[answering quickly without having seen more-recent posts yet]

I believe it is the Apache Community Wiki (aka OOOUSERS) that 
is intended to receive the list of still-active OO.o mailing lists that need 
to have some sort of arrangements made for migration, one way or another: 

The proposal here is to the effect that OO.o lists will be shut down and that 
there will be some select number of ooo-yourListNameHere@ 
lists offered as Apache project alternatives.

One problem being faced is that Apache infrastructure does not have an 
existing way to preserve the OO.o lists in their present form, with the 
subscription mechanism connection to User IDs (and other means 
of subscription), the archives, and, I suppose, the @OO.o list names.

To do otherwise requires this project coming up with the necessary personnel 
to accomplish some less-disruptive approach.  Also, individuals who are 
already able to administer and moderate those lists are needed to support such 
a migration.  That needs to be sustaining support.  Apache Infrastructure can 
provide the platform, but maintenance and operation of the service, to the 
extent that it is unique here, must be supported by volunteers from the Apache project.  That includes not only moderators, but 
administrators, including site administration for the running mailing-list 

John, are you able to support us having something less apocalyptic for when 
the web site is moved to ASF custody?  Do you have contact with 
those who can?

 - Dennis

To the developers: What" wiki" are you talking about? I guess I have
missed some e-mails, but I do object to having the current mailing lists
removed, as it does not make any sense to do so!:-(
