Aaahh. Well that is far more than I can handle.
I thought it was a more tangible team than apparently it really is. As a
humble, not-so-technically inclined user, I would say that such a team is
It seems like I've seen relatively a lot of people offer to help with UI/UX. If
all that's lacking is one or 2 people to take a leadership or organizational
role, I wonder if adding it to the To-Do List page would help?

The above, plus managing ux requests and making sure the team has a
function that it can maintain. So if we have a discussion about a ux
piece, there's a gitlab issues tracker or similar we can all go to.
But the actual setup is up to the leader and team tbh.
"A function that it can maintain" is definitely true. A UX team would
be notably different from, say, the Docs or Vectors team, in that it is
(ideally) inward facing rather than outward facing. Documentation and
marketing have essentially stand-alone output, with their input being
into our development efforts. A UX team operates in the reverse
direction, so will require setting up tighter coordination. So a
principle goal for setting up a UX team would be working out a good
strategy for getting development done on the changes they identify.
I have some further ideas here on how to relate the team to our
development roadmap, and would be happy to brainstorm with anyone
interested in getting this ux team up and running.
