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
change.

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
team is formed by Council members (2-3)? This team will gather feedback
from the community ( "Hey devs, which teams need urgent attention?" ),
design solutions and bring them to the Council agenda?
