Actually, the convention at Apache is to have "general" lists for
projects.  Remember, all lists are used for discussions. The name of
the list expresses either 1) Who is doing the discussing (dev, users,
etc.), or 2) The topic of the discussion (private, support, etc.)
There is no need to put the name "discuss" in the list name.
"General" would be for discussions that are not specific to any other
project list.  So discussions of general interest.

I know this is different than how OOo did it.
