I beg to differ: I believe the cost to join the documentation team is
much higher if it were a separate community. I even tend to say that
the cocoon-users list would be the best place for it! I think that
many documents were produced by new users that learned cocoon the hard
way and have written down their findings to help others. Well, at
least the documents I wrote started that way :-)

In addition, documentation efforts will be more visible to the
outside, which will be more motivating.

So I'm -1 on this.

Anyway, I would subscribe to such a list and sort it to the same inbox
as cocoon-users and cocoon-dev, so I wouldn't be able to tell the
difference ;-)
