OK.  That is good to know.

So we should probably mention both lists in the notification to discuss@oo.o.

We'll probably be merging other lists in a similar fashion.

users@ooo -> ooo-users
dev@ooo -> ooo-dev
discuss@ooo -> ooo-users

Also, within the projects, the dev-related projects (performance,
security, api, uno, xml, etc.) should go to ooo-dev as well.
