For translators those are technical details, but indeed at least when
the docs are fully translatable the availability of those under the
Ubuntu umbrella is very useful for discoverability.

I'm not aware of anything special the docs team could do better. Maybe
if something could be suggested, it would be to be careful when doing
mass changes, for example to punctuation, unless it's really, really
needed. Because of the Launchpad problematics I mentioned, they cause
havoc in the translations that is disproportionate to the perceived
amount of changes in the documentation itself.
