Okay, probably using plural {"groups of people (SIGs)"} was misleading
then. I just would prefer to see the procedure (i.e. the HOW TO request
help) documented somewhere instead of an inflation of SIGs. First see the
demand (i.e. the number of requests for help with technical issues), then
find out how the possibly small bug-fixing squad manages to deal with the
load. It could likely happen that they will be flooded with a growing
queue of bugzilla tickets.

And, of course, upstream should not be forgotten in the process.
Especially not when uptream is not Fedora-hostile (and not biased), but
active, confirms problems, and works on a fix instead of reacting with a
shrug of the shoulders.
