I wonder, if it is necessary to create an extra SIG for this. Although the
group of people interested in ROS on ARM has grown to a significant size,
there are still not so many people out there.
In order to avoid people getting scattered all over the place (and might
even lost), I suggest we use the existing Embedded SIG (
http://www.ros.org/wiki/sig/Embedded) for this.
It gathers people interesting in and working on different embedded levels,
such as ROS on ARMs running Linux distributions and ROS on/with
"bare-metal" embedded boards.
If this list/group gets to busy in the future, we still could split it up
in different groups later.
