Couple of comments here, consider the in abstract:

1) everything you mentioned here, we already do and will only increase
scope of

2) with the actual instance metadata in the public ( and on github! ) -
there is very little cross-checking needed, since the result of the
scripts is what gets published anyway ( and git log will history for
anyone who cares ).

3) given the intention and direction for some of the points, duplicating
effort also means diluting the single tooling effort - then at that
point why would you not want to just contribute ( as people, not as
projects ) into the common pool anyway ? ( ie. whats the justification
for Goose to exist ? )

finally, not sure what makes this into a SIG, the content being
addressed would be all in the public on git repos, so anyone can come
along and 'help get better'.
