Just so it's clear the WG's have now been granted weight in power to 
influence FESCo processes and decision distribution wide, more so then 
non product specific contributors and participants hence forcing 
contributors to seek their approval and accepted as well FESCo.

Just a heads up so people are aware of that when maintaining or planing 
to work on components that make up the core/baseOS layer or components 
that are depended upon it.
