I am sure people are wondering what the state of the SIG's is at this
point. And this is a quick recap of stuff from my perspective.

We have 8 SIG's that are under active consideration and planning.

Every SIG proposal needs to go via the CentOS Board for inclusion and setup.

The CentOS Board is starting to get a regular meeting schedule doing,
and will meet every Wednesday ( minutes for every meeting will be posted
on the website, Jim is working out the mechanics for that ).

Starting with the Board meeting of the 5th March, we will consider SIG
plans, no more than 2 a meeting, at every other board meeting. These
meetings will be held in public, and the SIG's being considered will be
notified in advance so they can come and be a part of the conversations
( and any followup can happen immediately after the meeting ).

In the coming days, I will be reaching out to the people who nominated
themselves to be SIG coordinators, for the SIG's I've offered to help
sponsor and start working on the proposals. The proposals will be on the
wiki.centos.org site and I'll try to post updates to this list (
centos-devel ) so others can chime in and we incorporate wider, public
viewpoints on the proposal.
