Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Support Project

This is the SBAY SIGs Wiki web space, the discussion area for sharing ideas and developing procedures for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of the South Bay Community Network (sbay.org).

Subscribers to any sbay.org mail list may self-register for write access to this site. See UsingTheSbayWiki for more information able participating in this site.

SIG Charters

Each Special Interest Group is an organization with its own charter as its governing document.

Incubation

Incubation is a term sometimes used for helping businesses to get started. In this case it's for clubs, events or projects getting started as a Special Interest Group under SBAY. We use the term similarly to the Apache Software Foundation and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation when they bring new projects on board.

New SIGs will use the IncubationChecklistTemplate to determine the course from entry to exit from Incubation.

New SIG Incubation Checklist: (replace "Blah" with the new SIG name)

Graduation from Incubation

The following SIGs were grandfathered in and exempted from the incubation process at the time of the approval of the By-Laws when they were amended with new SIG rules and other preparations for the 501(c)3 tax-exempt status application. Each is required to make its own charter (organizing document).

  • Stratofox - charter approved July 25, 2006
  • SVWUX - charter approved July 25, 2006
  • Linux Picnic - charter approved by members, board approval pending next meeting

Mail List

The SIGs mail list is intended for discussion among SIGs and how to provide support for them. Each SIG is basically a club within the club, with their own specific topic of interest but also a lot of common needs for maintaining a technical group.
