I think this goes with the current trends of re-centering upstream
"project teams" on the production of software, while using SIGs as
communities of practice (beyond the governance boundaries), even if they
happen to produce (some) software as the result of their work.

One question I have is whether we'd need to keep the "QA" project team
at all. Personally I think it would create confusion to keep it around,
for no gain. SIGs code contributors get voting rights for the TC anyway,
and SIGs are free to ask for space at the PTG... so there is really no
reason (imho) to keep a "QA" project team in parallel to the SIG ?

In the same vein we are looking into turning the Security project team
into a SIG, and could consider turning other non-purely-upstream teams
(like I18n) in the future.
