The page is an html page in git.  You can link to whatever you want from
there.  Last week I mentioned the doc where this is described[1] here on
this list.

It depends whether you consider placing some lines into some html
document maintained in Git "allocating resources". :-P

It is not important for me.  I was just wondering why you might create
extra work for potential co-workers from the Blends team to join an
additional team.  Did you set at least ACLs for DDs?

Please save your time and do not defend any decision you have
intentionally drawn and you are free to draw.  I write a separate mail
for those who are not that long on this list where I repeat my ideas
about Blends which seems to be necessary considering the last two
threads which have probably shown that I failed in explaining the whole
idea why I'm working on this.

Kind regards
