A working group in the sense of defining list of work items - and e.g. I'm interested in 1 of them and two others are interested in it too so we join forces and do it together each of us roughly doing 1/3 of the work would be the best from my POV. Aka the working group being a "matching site" helping interested parties find each other. And such an approach can have fastest results.
