I apologize for the formatting, Y!'s html-only text munging is to blame.

 To be specific, what I have in mind is something like
We probably don't need to start off with more subdivisions than that.

 This list is a pretty high volume list that really is intended for topics suitable for a
general audience of incubator participants.  Nevertheless it carries a lot of traffic better
suited for more topic-specific specialization.  Not everyone here is capable of participating
in release voting, acceptance voting, graduation voting, mentoring, documentation, or any
of the other of these specialized areas.  So it does make some sense to shut some of this
traffic elsewhere.
Formally, that's all a working group needs to be- yet another mailing list.  Informally it
could stimulate conversations between people working on similar subjects that don't want to
burden this list with that sort of conversation.

 Elsewhere in the org several ideas have been floated around regardinggeneral reorganization
and reform.  Things like possibly creating a newcommittee to oversee inbound and outbound
podlings, or perhaps having the IPMC form such a subcommittee.
I mention these notions not because I support them, but because othershere might want to pick
up that ball and push some of that to conclusion.
However, one related suggestion I do support: creating subdivisions withinthe incubator by
labor.  I would prefer to call those working groups butthat's not a big deal.
It would be beneficial in several ways: teams of ingress IPMC memberscould have a focused
discussion on their own list about how to makeimprovements in that labor area.  Similarly
for documentation, outbound transitioning, mentoring, tho as Martijn points out that might
need additional subdividing by focus areas or timeline specialization.
Ted can fully flesh the details out as this was something he mentioned to me as one possible
avenue of improvement.
