Does anyone know of an industry standard for measuring the number of
documentation writers needed on a project to the number of developers?

# of tech writers
# of developers

We base the number of developers and QA people for a project on the size and

If you don't know of any kind of standard, how do you estimate the number of
writers needed on a project?

Please copy your responses to rdarrenc -at- aol -dot- com -dot- I had to stop my subscription
