Why does this group require the Foundation
The Erlang Ecosystem community needs a coordinated effort to promote its activities, both internally and externally. Additionally, with a Working Group dedicated to raising the profile of itself and its other Working Groups, the EEF will see increased engagement and be better able to attract sponsors and members. We can also provide valuable feedback to the Foundation on the state of the community via outreach. Support from the Foundation will enable these activities.
