Maybe I should have added here: It's a SIG that is governed by the EPEL

I'd say it's round about: If you want to become a member of a SIG then 
you add your name to the page in the wiki; if you want to get out you 
remove your name. That afaics how it works/worked in many Fedora SIGs 
and I see no reason why EPEL should be different.

I'd say it are people that have a eneral interest in EPEL and want to 
keep it running and help to improve it.
