Fedora Usability isn't a project as of yet, despite any announcements to
the contrary.  Right now, we're hashing out on the advisory-board list
the issue of group creation under the Fedora umbrella.  We want
contributors to feel empowered to do new and unique things, as well as
improve Fedora.  But it has to be done in some trackable way so we don't
end up leaking resources over time without results.  Also, offiical
subprojects like Art, Docs, or Extras need to be able to create working
groups to get things done without being hampered by a lot of
administrivial nonsense.  Names are powerful things, so we can refer to
this as an "initiative" or a "SIG" until there's a finished policy,
which should be very soon.
