There are two problems: the documentation and the forum. About the
documentation, I can see that anyone can edit most pages, except from
a few special pages that rarely change (pages about concepts,
policy...). Thus I don't see any problem about that. And it is not
different from wikipedia.org.

About the forum: there is no "team" on it, neither. The problem is
just that it is hard for searching (in comparison to StackOverflow
when asking a new question).
