I'd suggest adding a footer to all these mailing list mails that states the
project is now at Apache and the list will be closed down in the future and
moved to an Apache.org address.

There should also be regular mails to the lists saying the same and inviting
list participants to join ooo-dev@incubator.apache.org to discuss their
needs.

As lists are created here you can change these headers and mails to warnings
about switch off with subscription instructions for the lists here.
