Please don't take this personal, but this sounds like the plan to 
organise an army rather than a fun project.

Personally I see myself in none and at the same time in many of those 
groups. I enrolled (to use army terminology) in the packager team but so 
far for example i did the italian translation of the mageia home page 
and the demonstration of the forum gateway, both things completely 
unrelated to packaging.

I understand that some people like to just focus on one niche (and 
they should be able to do just that), but others like myself get quickly 
bored doing just one thing all the time, so personally I hope the 
structure won't be so rigid that people like myself can't collaborate a 
bit everywhere.

For example I will be on the forum too, occasionally helping newbies, I 
might spot someone reporting what looks like a bug in app that i have 
packaged so i might look at it straightaway (bypassing the bug/triage 
team), etc.

So I hope the Mageia leaders will keep this into account and encourage 
mixing between the teams, rather than rigid separation.
