>> Hi User Committee and Meta-SIG,
>> PWG presented a proposal to disband the working group at the OpenStack
>> Foundation Board meeting yesterday and the board agreed with our assessment
>> and recommendation. This message is to formally request for the WG to be
>> wrapped up (since it is under UC governance) and also to share relevant
>> information with the Meta-SIG team...
>> We believe that relatively recent changes in the OpenStack community
>> (within the last year) allow for objectives such as cross project
>> coordination/collaboration, WG/Project team collaboration, and building
>> multi-release directional guidance in a distributed manner across our
>> community. This means that most of the goals of the product working group
>> charter now have better avenues for delivery than within the group itself.
>> The three major goals for the Product Working Group were:
>> - Creating a community-generated multi-release roadmap
>> - Collect feedback and aggregate requirements from our user-base and
>> the various 'markets' where OpenStack clouds have been adopted
>> - Plan, prioritize, coordinate, and track implementation of
>> development proposals
>> Each of these goals is being pursued through various structures and
>> initiatives within the OpenStack community at this point:
>> - The PWG roadmap sub-team was spun off from the Product Working
>> Group and is being led by Anne Bertucio from the OpenStack Foundation (this
>> team is looking for more volunteers, so please let Anne know if you are
>> - The forum event allows for both individual teams and SIGs to
>> discuss requirements directly with stakeholders and users
>> - The advent of SIGs allows for greater collaboration between
>> developers, operators, users, and other stakeholders within the same group.
>> - Cross-project efforts that require collaboration between teams to
>> deliver a capability can be facilitated through the SIG construct and
>> things that we would like to see adopted across all projects can be
>> addressed via release goals.
>> The development proposal workflow we created within the PWG, we believe,
>> could provide SIGs with a useful framework on how ideas can be taken from
>> concept to implementation in a repeatable manner. If the Meta-SIG is
>> interested in learning more about the workflow, the core members from the
>> PWG would be glad to join a meeting to discuss the workflow and help
>> transition it to the Meta-SIG. Please let us know!
>> The core members of the Product Working Group would like to thank
>> everyone who contributed in this working group (including OpenStack
>> Foundation staff) and helped pave the way for a successful exit! It has
>> been an amazing journey over the last 3 years and we want to thank the
>> OpenStack community for working with us along the way and making this a
>> rewarding experience.
