certainly subscribe to that.   The footer provided on ooo-documentation list forwardings
could even include a link to a wiki page description of other places to discuss documentation,
provide feedback, contribute documents, reviews and edits, etc.

Rather than creating another list on speculation that it might get
sufficient traffic, could we just forward the legacy address to
ooo-dev?  If it ends up generating sufficient traffic then it will be
easy enough to create a dedicated list for it.  But I'm not in favor
of creating a new list for it at this point.
