Well, at the risk of more bikeshedding, the "official" name for all
these in Fedora now is "Team", where each team can choose to call
themselves a Team, a SIG, or a Working Group at their preference.

Working Groups in Fedora currently have a Council reporting
requirement, but that's going away because nobody did it anyway...

We could just crib the whole "Team" name and let that be used too.
