At the moment OpenStack infrastructure doesn't allow to customize the
bugs it creates, we should propose a patch at some point to implement
that. When we do, I think we should assign such bugs automatically to
fuel-docs team.

I don't think we should separate user and dev docs bugs, we're working
in the opposite direction towards merging dev docs into fuel-docs:

Where is your 80% dev vs user docs figure coming from?

I think that whether it's dev or user documentation, a technical
writer should drive the process, collect information from the commit
author, and add it to the right documentation areas. It's commit
author's responsibility to provide an informative commit message in
the first place, to answer technical writer's questions, and to review
docs commits that address the DocImpact bug.
