At the Fedora Project Board call today, one thing we talked about is the

That's fine, if that's what you want.  When it was originally created, the CWG was meant to be reactive -- we traditionally haven't gotten involved in a situation (as a group) until we've been specifically asked to.  I'm happy to jump in a be more proactive when mailing list discussions get out of hand -- I just don't want to overstep our charter.

It probably wouldn't hurt to have the Board let us know exactly what and how they'd like us to work, and go back through and see who is still willing/able to help out in the CWG.  In the meantime, I'll be more vigilant in the mailing lists about trying to help people "be excellent".
