We are largely meeting needs other than ourselves though. Volunteer or not has nothing to do with it.

I'm not sure what this "if you don't even want to try" bit is about,
since this isn't about me, it's about imposing another manual task on
our maintainers.

I do read the guidelines, and while there are MANY of them, they tend
to make sense, and where I don't think they do, I still respect them.

No. Don't do that. If you don't think anything doesn't make sense, ask questions. We don't need to blindly respect anything.

I don't think you're "merely documenting them" here, however; this is
_clearly_ a new task being discussed.

I don't think so. Bodhi description fields have been considered mandatory and filling them has always been a manual task. People just assumed, everyone would know what to fill it with. That hasn't worked out very well for us and has been a common question as well in #fedora-devel. By documenting them, we get that knowledge more easily preserved.
