We (Ian Jacobs and I) are available to help with questions on  
infrastructure and such.

I have contacted that group at two occasions in March and September,  
principally about the lack of chair but have not heard back.

If Melvin wanted, he could very well take leadership of that CG (that is  
option 1 described below).
Again, info on how to choose a chair:  
<http://www.w3.org/community/about/tool/#choose-chair>

I have cc'ed Dominik Tomaszuk, who proposed the group in August 2011.
