What we really need is some guidance for the package submission
process, which encourages new packages (and even old packagers) to
review the list of SIGs and make a determination as to whether the new
package submission should come to the SIGs attention at package
submission time.

For example I may at some point actually package a game...maybe....but
I'm most likely forget that a Games SIG exists by that point. But if
there's a broken out bullet item for the Contributor AND the reviewer
in the submission/review process guidance to review the SIG list (and
set the appropriate tracker bug if desired)  that would be a really
good reminder to keep SIGs in mind.

Which reminds me, now that I'm in my new job I really need to touch
base with the scientific SIG.
