Good question :) 

IMHO it should work like this (or maybe: IMHO we should have something
like the following -- if we name it "SIG" might be a different

Extras, Legacy, Ambassadors, Docs, Core (?) and other "big"
projects/PMC's to be started in the future are the "main" Fedora
projects. When there is a large sub-area of work (to give the example of
Extras: People that watch security lists and file bugs for open issues,
people that take care of QA, people that are interested in reviewing and
maintaining games or perl-stuff) then it can be handled by a special
interest group (SIG) that should consist of at least three (five?)
people. That SIG should have a leader and maybe a small (two or three
people) "Board". The leader and/or the board report to the lead of the
project/PMC (e.g. in the Extras case to FESCo).

Well, the "Extras Games stuff" IMHO still should remain as a sub-project
of Extras that reports to FESCo normally.

Just my 2 cent that look at it from the Extras perspective.
