New Revision: 38980

  Update the doceng charter to reflect reality:
  - doceng@ is not new at all
  - clarify two types of doc commit bits
  - doc is now in SVN
  - remove stating translators will be added to doceng@ since this text has
    been there for a long time but it never has been a criterion when
    inviting members
  - voting deadline is 2 weeks (however, it is a worst case) for doceng
    since there are only four members and we need representative numbers
    for a vote
  - style fixes
  With hat:	doceng
