I totally agree. Documentation is a process in which people who want to
get involved, can be by joing the IRC and seeing what's going on there.

FDSCo meetings are more like a gathering of people then the more
formalized meetings that happen on #fedora-meeting. Also we tend to flux
throughout the week which would give problems based on fixed time schedules.

In the end, I agree with both Karsten and Bob that the new FDSCo should
consider this and get to an agreement.
