Good idea to create another group to manage group ownership but would it not be easier to assign the site collection administrators these permissions? However I'm not sure if the site collection admistrators (at central admin level) exist in a group of their own. Does anyone know who I might browse to this up from the wss directory service?

thanks

Best Reference to create/Remove users to/from the groups and checking is group and users exists also.
Note: We have to check before adding/removing users to/from the group and also check the users already exists or not in group.
