Community Groups

A list of our community groups: Special Interest Groups, Working Groups and Committees.

Most community activity is organized into Special Interest Groups (SIGs), time bounded Working Groups, and the community meeting.

SIGs follow these guidelines although each of these groups may operate a little differently depending on their needs and workflow.

Each group’s material is in its subdirectory in this project.

When the need arises, a new SIG can be created
