The partnership of the members is crucial for the success of the working groups. The members of the working groups commit themselves to cooperating with principles of openness, transparency and meritocracy.The tasks are organized in different Special Interest Groups (SIG). Every NXg SIG has a Maintainer and minimum three Contributors. The Maintainer is responsible for driving the vision and managing the aspects of the SIG. He may also be a hardware or software contributor of the SIG. A Contributor is everyone who has contributed something back to the project.
