Yes but like I said, many project keep their documentation in their
project pages. Like openrc does for baselayout-2 migration guide.
I don't disagree with you and yes maybe more team need to be
managed/monitor at a senior level. The thing is that something HAS to
I like your idea about the authority team (though this introduces
another layer of bureaucracy). It would be nice to have a team
monitoring all the projects and poking council to take action when
needed. But this team looks like similar to QA doesn't it? What if this

from the community ( "Hey devs, which teams need urgent attention?" ),
design solutions and bring them to the Council agenda?
