Here is the post I sent to users@ooo.  It appears to have caused

information.  This might be a good topic for a project blog post.


Please note that, as part of the overall migration to Apache, this
list will be closed.  Based on feedback received, including from
participants on this list, we've decided to create a users list at the
Apache project to serve as a continuation of

That Apache list is live now.  Although is not
going to disappear immediately, it will eventually be shut down.    So
you might want to finish the threads you are engaged in here, but try
