I'm of a mindset that aims to avoid creating rules & bureaucracy, so don't
feel you need to get permission to form a special interest group to work on
the libvirt VIF drivers. Any group of interested devs should just collaborate
and divide work up between themselves. I just strongly suggest that you
work to keep any design / technical discussions in public forums. ie have
your email discussions on this openstack-dev mailing list or #nova IRC, and
not in private CC'd email threads between the special interest team. This
ensures that anyone with interest can watch what's going on, without having
to formally join any team.
