Hi all (and if not all, feel free to add them to CC).
I'd like to establish
WebKit SIG (or some sort of group of people interested in WebKit in Fedora -
no need for any official one) as it's quite an overhead to maintain such a big

- sometimes the primary maintainer of one of WebKits is

What can I bring to the team?
I'm a current primary QtWebKit

If you're interested in - please reply,
I'd like to start Wiki page and we can talked about more details
