Moving the SIG proposal forward requires a CentOS board member to sponsor the SIG.  Period.

I have not been able to get any board member to establish themselves as a sponsor which effectively vetos the SIG.  The purposal has been sitting for 3 months with no indication any sponsor will ever be stepping forward.

It confuses me why it has been indicated that with Stream the board wants more SIGs but the same level of redtape to avoid them remains in place.

Feel free to jump on the IRC channel and see if any board members become available to discuss this issue.

I personally have become completely demoralized and have a better understanding now why EL Repo does not make use of any CentOS resources to function.

I like your ideas and would like to help move this forward but I have no further advise at this time.
