How to join the mailing lists
During the transition of OpenOffice.org from Oracle to Apache, we have two main mailing lists:
- firstname.lastname@example.org (Apache-OOo) for discussions related to OpenOffice.org (not just Documentation) project infrastructure and policy.
- email@example.com (ODFAuthors), where writers, editors, reviewers, and others discuss documents they are working on.
We recommend you subscribe to each of these mailing lists. The ODFAuthors list is essential: if you do not subscribe, any message you send will be delayed while a moderator finds time to approve it, and you will not see any replies to your messages. Thus you will not be able to participate effectively with the team.
Note: The lists are public and messages posted to them can be found through Google and other archives. Some people choose to use pseudonyms on the mailing lists for this reason.
