We want to catch things that are somewhat higher-level than individual
bugs. The opportunity here is to make sure "Features" go to the right
place, and that status is communicated regularly. In some cases this
means asking Red Hat to consider prioritizing engineering against an
initiative, other times it makes more sense to spin up a SIG, other
times it might make sense to recommend something like EPEL.

An example of something that would have been considered by this group is
the recently completed work to build and ship Stream 8 container images
to quay.io.
