Several threads have been started recently which question certain aspects of how the DAG is organised, and who should and shouldn't be allowed to do what and so on. As a reminder, my personal take on this is that The DAG is nothing more nor less than the collective members here - I presented that in my blog post some time ago.

It's evident from a recent poll that the vast majority of members are content with the way the DAG operates and is "structured" (whether you regard it as a structure or a lack thereof). For those that wish to debate the rights and wrongs of how the DAG is set up, please join the DAG Watchdog group, currently administered by elgee

I would ask the administrator(s) and contributors in the Watchdog group to post their findings and conclusions publicly only when they have reached clear conclusions.

Sure, but we want to be democratic, don't we? The Watchdog group will have only the same power as any other bunch of people here - the chance to vote, when appropriate, on polls etc.


Surely everyone has that right now anyway

Surely everyone has that right now anyway - without an EWG

:-)

Why do we need yet another group, h8ll there's so many groups / quarums / quango's I've lost track and I suspect many others have too.


Why groups?

Nobody has to join any of them A few are working well, Derbyshire and Pensioners among them I believe, though admittedly a few others are probably obsolete. The Geo groups are there to support people getting together so that they can take local action, be that lobbying the nearest UK embassy or whatever. The groups reduce the signal-to-noise ratio in the public (all-members) are by moving stuff which is not relevant out of the way. That way everybody can hopefully focus better.
