I suggest that sub-groups be setup in exactly the same manner as the parent working group. We're pretty much agreed that each working group has a chairperson, mailing list, charter/goals, lifespan (and whatever else) which are agreed in advance by the Perl6 project manager. These sub-groups can be defined recursively as mini working groups. They'd have a chairperson, mailing list, charter/goals, lifespan (and whatever else) which are agreed in advance with the chairperson of the parent working group. Seems kinda neat. Tim.
