To help me work on a conversation... would

EPEL would be a sub-project or a SIG?
PPC port would be a sub-project or a SIG? [The picture says
sub-project.. but I want to confirm]

The next issue would be can people fill different roles: Mairin Duffy
would hit multiple areas. I don't see anything in the proposal that
says they can't but its long and I might have missed it.

The third issue is management. Each SIG and Sub Project would require
their own management structure. Are they overlapping or are they
complementary? What size should they be and how do they map to an
overall tree (some people hate trees, others require some knowledge of
their local ape grooming structure to function.)
