Is there one?

http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/
doesn't show or refer to one.

The german wiki page
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Local_Mailing_Lists/de has some
additions and links for that. Maybe somebody should translate that
to the english page.

I suppose. But that page is on
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Local_Mailing_Lists/ so even if
translated and cleaned up wouldn't suffice.

But if done it wasn't that difficult to link to?

The place for such a FAQ should be on
http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/ and apply to all
locales.

In my opinion the place of such a FAQ should be at a place easy to find
and to point at..

And then once finalised/finalized should be posted in each mail list
on a monthly basis so that list users are aware of
etiquette/action/cooperation on the lists. This used to be common
practice for mail lists in the past & helped resolve unnecessary posts
regarding posting styles[1], etc.

The problem - as seen also in this thread[1] - is that people don't mind 
to
read just for reading and thus these pointers don't help much. Instead
they - or at least some - do if pointed there in case of ineffective
communication style.

As You might have noticed, about 8 weeks ago I added a new line at the
footer of each english language mailing list:

Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette

So it's easy for each mailing list member to point to suitable
information if needed. No research in bookmarks or web. Just look (and
point as I do here) at the footer of the mail.

I choose to create that wikipage because no one was able or willing to
show me a appropriate place to link to. The wikipage makes it easy for
everyone to put in suitable text or links to complete information and
makes it easy to link from anywhere to recent information as well.

Please forgive me the poor content. Feel free to rise information and
cultural level. ;o))

It's pretty hard to condem someone for top-posting, going way of
topic, discussing religion, et al if there isn't a FAQ or some form
of common guideline for user behaviour in the mail lists.

Right - therefore my effort.

[..]

That said, here is a question; how can a common user be expected to
possibly find http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Local_Mailing_Lists/
to begin with?

Answer: Just point at the end of the mail and put the information You'd
expect at that target - done.

So: Good news. :o))

I see no link on
http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/ do you?

maybe soon??
