Following up on this theory, I looked around for an obvious
configuration or information bug at and, and nothing jumps out
as a reason people would be lead to this list for generic questions. 
For example, I looked to see if there was anywhere that fedora-docs-list
was described other than "participants of the Docs Project", and I
didn't find anything.

Next time we get such a question we'll have to ask how they found this
list for their answer.
