I've initiated http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Platform_Team
with this statement (which is different by meaning w/ previous one):

    The mission of Platform Team is providing, as unified as possible,
    runtime and development time environments for all sugar doers. In
    contrast with Development and Activity teams, Platform Team mission is
    not about development process itself but about supporting developers by
    providing the same set of possible dependencies and giving a common
    distribution method. Platform Team will work closely with GNU/Linux
    distributions that provide sugar and will try to round all differences
    between them to make sugar doers' life easier.
