This came up before (but I'm too lazy to go find the archived mailing  
list thread). Why do "developers" only get blogs? e.g. documentation  
team, marketing team, etc. etc.

If you want a blog, set one up external to Drupal.org, and we'll  
create a Developer Blogs category in the aggregator. Best is if you  
have a "Drupal" category, and we just syndicate that. If you apply  
Richard Eriksson's aggregator patch [1], you'll even get an outgoing  
feed of that category bundle.
