One suggestion that might help (if it's not already being done)... for those 
that are most intimate with the docs and with where we're coming up short, I 
think it'd be great to log this as a defect/bug in the Plone issue 
tracker.  Then, on 'bug Fridays', we can attack these bugs along with the 
code issues. Ken

everyone). Paying a manager for the documentation section isn't going to solve 
the root of the problem: we don't have enough people contributing correct 
documentation that is broad enough to apply to most use cases of Plone. If you 
want to pay someone to do documentation, pay them to write it, not to manage 
the section. ( and no, that is not a viable solution either) The majority of 
our doc Editors are doing a better job than anyone could have expected. I'm not 
inclined to change how we're operating until we've completed our current work. 
Plus, paying someone doesn't change the fact that we are busy with work and 
have lives outside of work and Plone. Doesn't really solve any of the issues we 
have with documentation, in my not so humble opinion.
