I've already decided to make the docs archives public.  However, the
previous archives have to be removed first; like for pydotorg, I do
not want them to be publicly available when the senders thought
otherwise.  As soon as the postmasters have archived the archive :)
the new archives will be public.

As for doc-SIG and docs at python.org: the former is for the discussion
of the "how" of our documentation -- how to write it, how to build it,
what features it should have.  The latter is for day-to-day handling
of issues and reports/comments people send to docs at python.org.  Think
of it like the difference between python-dev and the tracker/checkins

Also, if you want to post more to docs at python.org, I would recommend
to subscribe, otherwise I'll have to moderate all your posts.
