Looks like a good structure to me.
My only comment so far (given that it is clearly work in progress) is
to speculate that it may be worth pointing out that the How Sakai
Development works is a new development and there will be a period of
transition and adaptation (possibly pointing out that this may be more
visible in Sakai 2 work than 3). I can also see a counter argument to
keep things simple and I can go along with this too. The key thing
will be that people should understand if things end up a bit different
for 2 projects that have a history that predates this structure.
