>> [PROPOSAL] Ask the community to move all discussion of forums, user
>> support, forum management or technical implementations, over to the
>> ooo-users@ mailing list.
>> Rationale:
>> - ooo-dev@ is pretty heavily loaded, and this will reduce traffic for
>> people just working on code, build, and code IP issues.
>> - Much of the discussion about forum governance and technology is coming
>> from new (to Apache) users who have already expressed frustration at the
>> high traffic volume on ooo-dev@.
>> - Issues of user support techniques and issues of compiler flags are
>> really unrelated, and could easily be on separate lists.
>> - ooo-users@ is likely to remain somewhat quiet anyway until we have more
>> progress with a deliverable to show to end users.
>> Note that this presumes sufficient PPMC members will also join the
>> ooo-users@ list to ensure that we can get proper consensus on any issues
>> there before bringing them up for [VOTE]s or the like.
>> Note: history shows that it's important to think carefully before opening
>> new mailing lists or moving discussions between lists.  But I think it's
>> worth doing in this case.

> I agree with Zoltán: we are really near to the final agreement so it is a
bit late to make a move that will confuse more than help.
