Documentation developers are also developers, but they do not need to be an
ebuild-developer. If I look at the GDP current staffing, there are 8
developers that are also ebuild developers (or infrastructure or another
function within Gentoo) and 11 developers on the documentation (and
translations) only.

Requiring documentation developers to also take the ebuild and end quiz
would be overshooting, as that is not something they require.
