Are there any other distro-specific usability groups out there?

I'm kind of confused at the goal of a distro-specific usability group. 
Doesn't it make more sense to work with an upstream usability group such 
as the GNOME Usability Project (which is somewhat dormant AFICT)? Has 
someone tried to engage upstream via projects such as this and met with 
resistance? (this is the feeling I get from your email?)

Where I see a distro-specific usability group being useful:

- Software update tool usability (because different distros handle this 
- Infrastructure usability (e.g. usability of the Fedora website(s), 
account system, bugzilla, etc.)

But neither appears to be the goal...?
