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 generally discuss on the openstack-dev mailing-list and hold IRC meetings.
