Most of them are dead. Is it the sort of consistency we need? =)

Frankly, I do not really see why is it important to maintain a
separated ML dedicated to things that happen in another ML with rather
low traffic. People not subscribed to docs@ are unlikely to be
familiar with problems there. People from docs@ familiar with
problems, should also subscribe to docs-sig@ to participate in
discussion. How many new contributors subscribe to both lists? Even
now crossposting this thread causes duplicates in my email. I think
the process just won't work if docs@ become public.
