Yes of course!

I used to be a part of every team, now I am on the un-team, aka the Island of Misfit Toys. And that ain't Scrum.

I feel that doc can be a part of Scrum when done right, but what about those roles that touch every team but are not product specific like, as I mentioned, the buildmaster?
