===Setting up a new SIG===

Anyone can propose to setup a SIG, but needs to get the agreement and participation of a member of the CentOS Governing Board. To request a new Special interest group to be started, here is what needs to be done:

*    Look at the presently functional SIG's and make sure that your effort will not overlap with another team
*    Open a new discussion topic in the CentOS-Devel mailing list, asking for comments
*    One of the CentOS Board members will need to join the effort, once that happens then that Board member can :
:*        Request a new mailing list to be created (if needed)
:*        Request a wiki section to be setup
:*        If the SIG needs a version control system to be setup, that can also be requested (refer to the next section on git repo)
:*        Get listed as a SIG on this page 

Initiating a SIG git repo + koji process:

*    SIG must be approved by the Board
*    SIG needs to post its proposal to its wiki page
*    Chair should do requesting, alternatively the Board member mentoring the SIG can do the request
*    Chair requests wiki ACLs for all SIG committee members
*    SIG meets with Infra SIG member to discuss how the git repo is going to be setup
*    SIG will need a SIG-specific signing key to live on CentOS Project signing server and/or locally to the builder (process needs some improvement here)
*    Chair or Board mentor need to request a build tag on bugs.centos.org under buildsys component
*    Chair or Board mentor need to request koji targets and tags on bugs.centos.org under buildsys component
*    Chair or Board mentor need to request import of SRPMs to be imported in to git.centos.org RPM store, reqest via bugs.centos.org under buildsys component
*    Chair or Board mentor need to request koji certs for SIG members on bugs.centos.org under buildsys component
*    Chair or Board mentor needs to request a SIG project to be added to bugs.centos.org, or to add a component to another project e.g. CentOS-7 

More detailed SIG information may be found in the SIG Guide

===Requirements===

We expect each SIG to meet some basic requirements, these include :

*    The topic for the group must be related to CentOS, or a use scenario for CentOS

*    There must be adequate control and feedback into the CentOS community
:    Generally, all communication as to the work of the SIG should be public, understanding that sometimes a matter may need to be private; in such cases, please consult with the Devteam member out of band of the SIG
:    All code produced within the SIG must be compatible with a FOSS license presently used by CentOS; if a new license is wanted, again, please consult with the Devteam member

:    All documentation produced within the SIG must be compatible with the license of this wiki

:    We would expect teams to be watchful of general CentOS directions from the Devteam

:    At least one member of the SIG, who need not be the lead, needs to be a member of the CentOS Devteam. We are not trying to enforce any moderation, however, we feel that the actions of each SIG using CentOS resources needs to have visibility to the Devteam 

===SIG membership===

Normally, the following rules for SIG membership apply:

*    The mailing lists of the SIGs are open, and can be joined freely.
*    SIG members are appointed by the SIG team leader, and may have elevated privileges, like write access to the relevant Wiki section or SVN tree, depending on the role of the SIG member.
*    The SIG team leader may be asked to be a mailing list moderator; generally however, CentOS mailing lists are not moderated. 

===SIG Reporting===

SIGs are expected to report quarterly, with a brief summary of what they've accomplished in the past quarter. A suggested outline for this report is as follows:

*    Membership update (members added, removed. Chair changes.)
*    Releases in the most recent quarter (or most recent release, if none in that quarter)
*    Health report and general activity narrative.
*    Issues for the board to address, if any 

The reporting schedule is currently as follows:

====Group 1:====

Reports January, April, July, October

*    Core
*    Atomic
*    Config Management
*    PaaS
*    Software Collections 

====Group 2:====

Reports February, May, August, November

*    Alt Arch
*    Cloud
*    NFV
*   Promo
*    Storage 

====Group 3:====

Reports March, June, September, December

*    Artwork
*    Cloud Instance
*    OpsTools
*    Public CI
*    Virtualization 

Reports are due by end of business on the first Monday in the designated month, and should be sent to the centos-devel mailing list with a subject line of "[REPORT] XYZ SIG", where 'XYZ' is replaced with the name of your SIG. Reports are to be submitted by the SIG chair.
