Upstream Working Groups

Upstream work in OpenStack is organized under official project teams, but also more informal groups of people working in the same area with a common goal. Those working groups grow naturally and organically, and no permission is needed to create a working group. Just add them to this page to make your group easier to find. Workgroups should use OpenStack open communication media, including discussions on the openstack-dev mailing-list.
