Hi everyone,

Earlier this year we discussed areas we could collectively come together as
a community and be better. One area identified was getting unanswered
requirements simply put, answered[1]. After some small and larger
conversations the goal of adopting the SIG model, as touted by other
OpenSource communities like k8s and Fedora for example, was introduced at
the Forum[2].

With this goal in mind we understand that it is not the only single perfect
solution but it is one step in the right direction. Rather than wait for
ideas and implementation details to coalesce delaying the opportunity to
learn we decided to take to a couple actions:

   1. Start the openstack-sigs mailing list

   1. Propose creation of Meta SIG (
   ) *be sure to read this*

An initial thread[3] surrounding the effectiveness and implementation of
SIGs had been started and folks should continue the conversation by using
the [meta] tag on the openstack-sigs mailing list. We look forward to
lively and above all practical and applicable discussions taking place
within SIGs which result in unanswered requirements being answered.

Also we would like to encourage current folks to use the [meta] tag in your
emails to the mailing list to discuss any successes, failures, advantages,
disadvantages, improvements, suggestions, etc.
