Tt is a convention at Apache for the main list of a project to be a
"dev" list and for it to cover more than just coding.  But we could
decide to make a different convention if we think it would be less
confusing to our community.

To me "general" means a general project list, not specifically dev, or
qa or marketing, but all of these functions.

I don't have a strong preference for one naming scheme over another,
but it would be good to be consistent.  If we go with "project" then
maybe we rename ooo-dev to project@openoffice.apache.org at
graduation?
