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.
