It is probably a good idea to reduce the amount of documents nobody is really interesting it to a number close to zero. Usually documents of type minutes and decisions fall into this despised category. But meetings may have an interesting outcome, decisions may be documented to help team members understand why certain options have been taken and why alternatives were rejected.

For these cases the project management set of doctypes provides blueprints.
