Mike is correct.  

The Archive interface for OO.o is at <> for
the English language lists.  The major NLP lists have similar counterparts.  

This is a rather nice interface, especially for casual users.  The archive pages provide a
way to reply to the list and to make new posts too.

Some of the lists are not being administered at the moment, resulting in the kinds of problems
Eric Bachard has been reporting.

Also, GMANE is apparently archiving many of the OO.o lists, including users@OO.o.

That's a different archive from that pointed to by the (old) OOo web 
page. In fact, I wasn't even aware of it..... learn something new every 
day. OTOH, as markmail seems to be an independent site, I do wonder how 
long those archives are guaranteed to be around.... I still regret the 
demise of dejanews. Perhaps better kept in-house, IMO.

But thanks for the clarification.
