Lists confuse the folks who've never learned how to use them.  I use the 
gmane interface and read the lists as if the list was a newsgroup. 
That's my preferred way.

LO offers the lists, gmane for newsgroup software, and forums via the 
Nabble interface.

If you were at the LO Home page, and clicked on Get Help, you would have 
been sent here:

That lists all the help options available.

Scroll down to the Nabble entry, and you end up here:

This is a forum style interface for the mailing lists.

IMO, LO gives the user far more options for finding a preferred method 
of obtaining help than any other place I've been.  And the same for 
printed documentation.

FWIW, having used all three, lists, newsgroups, and forums, IMO forums 
are by far the most poorly organized method unless they offer a threaded 
view as the Nabble interface can do.



Also, for those that prefer the Nabble interface, the  Apache OpenOffice
mail lists on Nabble
are also available.    Able to search for and follow topics for both
projects with common set of tools.
