Or maybe broaden it to an ooo-distributors list, to include the those
distributing CD's, copies of AOO on their own website, as well as
mirror operators.  It benefits us if we have an easy way to
communicate with them on things such as release plans (they should
know things are coming well in advance), changes in branding, etc.

Although the technologies differ, they all have the common interest in
wanting to synch up with us on releases.  But not enough to suffer
through ooo-dev.
