As long as you don't go for "brace". That has unfortunate hunting implications, and not from the huntER side.

What would be a noun for "fixing products by documentation"?

Oh, well hell, then.... a parenthesis of techwriters.
An aside of techwriters.
An afterthought of techwriters.
A subjunctive of techwriters.
A resignation of techwriters (in whichever sense you think more appropriate).
A confusion of techwriters.
An amelioration of techwriters.
An update of techwriters.
A review of techwriters.
A markup of techwriters.
A markdown.... <badump-bump-tsshhh!>
A correction of techwriters.
A revision of techwriters.
A re-revision of techwriters.
A re-re-re.... now cut that out!
An unsung of techwriters.
A format of techwriters.
A contention of techwriters.
... and finally....
A goof of techwriters (again, in whichever sense you prefer... it no longer being Friday as I write).

So put me in the "qwerty" camp, but I think we have (at least) a new poll question. 8-) Too bad March Madness is over--we could have had brackets!

...and no, I'm not advocating for "a bracket of tech writers." Though it could grow on me...

A single source of tech writers, then, perhaps...
