There is no SIG yet because A SIG needs APPROVAL from the board. But
there already are couple of people interested: Marc Wiriadisastra, Simon
Wesp, Sebastian Vahl and two people from the LXDE team who have joined
Fedora recently but are still waiting for sponsorship in the ambassadors
group. And me of course as the main LXDE maintainer.

It definitely is not a Fedora project, it's just a Remix without Fedora
Artwork etc. So it's not Fedora, people just get this impression because
it is hosted at a fedoraproject.org website.

Others are always invited, as long as they are willing to cooperate and
not do any solo attempts. Any help and input would be appreciated. Look
at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LXDE_Spin and feel free to contact me.
