I dont see to what relevance this being user list or development list is 

These are discussion about integration of the building block of the OS 
in downstream distribution which upstream should only be involved with 
for guidance.
( upstream should never be maintaining their own component in downstream 
distribution for obvious reasons ).

To coordinate and oversee and collectively share work done between 
distribution integrating the relevant components in their distribution.

Basically the same thing we ( we as in major distribution + few I 
personally never heard of ) did in 2011 with the exception that now 
Debian and Ubuntu have joined the party and we would have a shared git 
repository to use instead of everyone having one either on an individual 
level or distribution level.
