That's a great idea. I wondered how the collaboration between hackers
and designers work up to now (I'm neither of both, but I'm convinced
this beeing a key for the success of LibreOffice as an end user product)

hmm on the tdf-based lists moderation means: mails of unsubscribed users
go through, but spam doesn't..

Hmm I'd like to see that list's home among the libreoffice.org family
for one main advantage those have: Each mail has in it's header an
Archived-At: tag.

The last, I posted on projects list has:
Archived-At: <http://go.mail-archive.com/s5lAIIvEapds74WcmeN5ORhy5Zo=>

You might examine any (fairly recent) tdf list's headers to find it.

This is a great feature particularly for this hybrid list regarding it's
role beeing glue between the two worlds and fuel for discussions in
each, throught very easy pointing at a contribution.

Additionally there is a very effective moderation mechanism by just
answering a mail for passing a posting to the list, which reduces pain
to do so. (I would volunteer in this case :o)) )
