Community Groups choose their own Charter.  The template attached to 
this provides one approach.

Template for Community Group - potentially large number of specs and 
easy to add specs


Intended for Community Groups that have vague scope or don't know yet 
what the scope and deliverables are.  Makes it easier to join a loosely 
specified Community Group like this because patent licensing happens 
only for specifications that a participant opts-in to work on.  Those 
decisions don't have to be made before joining.

1a. Deliverables can be added to easily and scope can be broadly defined.
1b. CG Charter written/modified by Working Group.
1c. To provide protection against unintended contribution in a group 
with potentially many specs, Community Group participants must opt-in to 
work on a particular spec (makes it easier to join CG)
1d. Community Group uses GitHub
1e. Fairness rules in Charter
