Btw. for embedded as I understand WGs - these four were setup as an initial
seed to begin with something. Embedded WG in the (near) future is of course

For release cycle, yes, Base will be that lowest common denominator. That's
why I'm on board (and why I signed up for Base ;-). The biggest limitation
here are "resources", from qa, releng tooling. Currently it's pretty difficult
to produce and release one well defined collection in one time. Let's hope
tooling (QA and relengs are planning now) will help (and I know it will ;-).
And one thing I'd like to work as member of WG and FPGM is to share as many
resources, as many processes between products as possible, not to break 
apart completely but still allow flexibility and governance of upper level
WGs ;-).
