Jean, I am all right with whatever scope an list name you agree on.

I assume you will a moderator (which is great since you are in Australia).  I'll support you
as another moderator.  If we get one moderator from Europe along with any others that raise
their hands, we will have straddled the globe pretty nicely.

Moderation is pretty easy as well as I can tell.

I'll provide the e-mail address to use for me when you are ready to request the list.

Also, I don't think moderators are required to be committers, so this is an opportunity for
others here to contribute in an unusual way.

 - Dennis

IMO, can be mapped to ooo-dev. That list was used
for policy and infrastructure discussions, which would fit well on

I would like to see user-faq.authors mapped to ooo-userdocs, for
reasons stated earlier, so I shall endeavour to find several
moderators and a core group of list members. The list certainly
fulfills the criterion of discussion on the legacy OOo list.

If anyone reading this note would like to offer to be a moderator,
please speak up!
