David, John, et al:

I would very strongly recommend against increasing traffic on one list by
piping another lists output to it.  I believe that the nature documentation
discussion is parallel to the development process.

I would also caution against mass subscribing people to cocoon-docs. I would
much rather let people self select into the docs list. That way we have only
the people who are interested in participating in the documentation effort
to be on the list.

As for crossposting, I have an idea. Find a way to automate reports back to
cocoon-dev using something similar to what Nikola Ken uses for reporting
patches.  It would imply creating a documentation catergory in Bugzilla but
it would be a better answer than crossposting or posting to Cocoon-dev IMO

Thought, comments?
