Hi Everyone,
 
Where I work, we have weekly meetings with the dev teams and other stakeholders.
 
That is where we iron out any issues or log bugs, etc.
 
Not sure if you guys do something similar for Ubuntu. We put out new tools every 6 mths and thus we meet oftern.

I don't intend to discuss this any further, as you are intent on being insulting.

This isn't about tone or opinion - it's about logic. 

Automatic login is a feature the developers included in the operating system. 

Since it's a feature, it should be documented. 

The Documentation Team's job is to document the software, right? 

If the Documentation Team questions the value of a feature, what is 
the procedure that should be followed? 

Wouldn't the sensible next step be for the Documentation Team to take 
the issue up with the developers in an effort to have the feature 
removed? 

If the developers agree to remove the feature in future releases, is 
the Documentation Team obligated to document the feature for the 
releases it's available in? 

If the developers insist that the feature will not be removed 
because it's valid/necessary/important, is the Documentation Team 
then obligated to document it?
