I agree with Nicola Ken. Rather than closing the facilities,
we need to utilise them properly. Actually, back when we were
talking about starting the cocoon-docs list, it was already
suggested that it would only work if all committers were on
that list and if doc-related discussion happened there rather
than just Cc from elsewhere.

My main point is that we just need to refrain from using the
term "documentation team". This gives an erroneous impression.
