I'd say no (but that's just my opinion) -- until now the SIG worked
mostly like this afaics: SIG members simply do stuff and keep the other
members up2date with what they do and as long as nobody yells everything
is fine.

That's a whole lot easier for a getting stuff done in this startup
phase. But is we start to have controversial topics with real
battle-voting's then I'd say we have to get a lot of process in place
first. E.g.

- where to vote (IRC, mailing lists)
- how many voters have to vote +1 to accept something
- who coordinates the votes (chaos would arise if everybody calls out
for voting's )
- control who becomes a SIG member (having voting with more then 20
people becomes problematic)
- announce voting's beforehand and give members enough time to vote
- some other stuff I'm forgetting now

That's a lot of process to put in place and to document. I agree that we
need that sooner or later, but I must say I had hoped we could finish
this startup phase without all that overhead.
