The role of MeeGo working groups are explained at http://meego.com/about/governance
This is a request to the Technical Steering Group to approve the creation of a Community working group.
Ensure that it's possible to build Meego systems based on DEB packages.
While the founders of Meego have clearly selected RPM due to availability of some testing/QA infrastructure coming from Moblin, there's no technical reason why DEB could not be used to build alternate Meego system images. The OBS build system is already able to cope with Debian packages and the number of contributors with a Debian background is sufficiently important to provide the required packaging files.
Official DEB support will avoid useless Meego forks and ensure that everybody is able to work as close to upstream as possible.
