The group to discuss administering the groups.drupal.org web site.
We also have an issue queue for the groupsorg.module that runs on this site for things that need code changes.
Hey Maintenance group,
I was told by some other members this was the appropriate place to post this.
I have myself a well put together mess:
It is as follows:
I had originally created a DO account:
later on during the GDO migration i believe i was forced to create another account with the exact same username, which left me with the following accounts:
NEW DO account: http://drupal.org/user/1184088 (individual membership attached to this account, and all of my current community posts)
Hello, I'm following the 'Abandoned Groups: Policy for Deleting a Group or Changing Its Manager' here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/39596
The United Kingdom group is effectively abandoned, I have followed steps 1 to 3:
And this is step 4, I now ask if you could transfer ownership of the group to me, and then I can add the other people that would like to be administrators.
Currently groups.drupal.org has a "Job" content type available for content creators to use.
Due to the number of organizations looking to do hiring, the availability of this content type has resulted in an increasing number of Job content type nodes being posted into groups here where job postings reduce the effectiveness / usefulness of the group. Frequently (almost always?) the job postings are for positions that have very little to do with the subject matter of the group.Read more
A group was in the moderation queue for a number of months and I just merged it with another group. Unfortunately, I did this before explaining in the moderation log what I was about to do. Deleting the group and merging it, of course, removed it from the moderation queue. Oops.
Here's the message I sent phunster, who proposed the group. It's here partly so that I have a template to reuse in the future.

These two groups appear to overlap quite a bit and I propose that we merge them into one.
Here are the mission statements for each group:
The popularity and use of DRUPAL has grown by leaps and bounds; thanks to the vibrant community it has developed around it.
The South Bay DRUPAL meetup is another effort in building and strengthening the local Drupal Community.
Drupal adoption and use, and the community around it, are growing more and more. For example, there are good possibilities to celebrate the first DrupalCon Latino soon, probably the fourth quarter of this year 2012, in Brazil this first time.Read more
The bluecheese theme (aka the theme you love on drupal.org and have been dying to get on groups.drupal.org) is now available for you to select in your profile. Got to your profile click the edit, scroll down, choose bluecheese, and poke around the site.
There's already a few things that need changing. See these issues first:

Thanks to drumm for updating lots of modules on the site and getting it into bzr/jenkins like all the other sites.
Let's talk about what's broken and fix it.
- We lost a few theme tweaks - I think we should not try to revive but instead should move to the new theme
- We lost a few configurations from updates (vote up down was just gone from the site for a while, I fixed that).
What else is broken/missing?
As the Drupal Bangladesh Group is not active.
I want to mange this group from now on.
I am C, C++, Java & PHP programmer with 2 years of web developing experience.
I hope I could be a right option to maintain or manage "Drupal Bangladesh"
I've already opened a discussion on "Drupal Bangladesh" group page & sent a thread to the previous Group Organizer.
The thread is: http://groups.drupal.org/node/198063
I've opened a discussion in our language "Bangla" too.
The thread is: http://groups.drupal.org/node/198078Read more
(Cross-posted because this is a g.d.o management issue as well as a g.d.o usage issue.)
I've noticed that several groups on g.d.o are set as closed membership (i.e., g.d.o members can't just join, they have to ask to join or be invited to join).
Very partial list of some closed groups, for illustration
I started a new Drupal group for my area a little over a month ago (first meet up tonight!), but I'm noticing that the group is not in the main groups listing and has the moderation message at the top of it. Have I missed a step in setting up the group? Any way I can request to have it moderated into a "real" group? Thanks for any pointers!
Hi, was there a glitch on groups.drupal.org yesterday? I ask because christefano has appeared as a group admin for the groups.drupal.org/la group http://groups.drupal.org/og/users/3002. Neither I nor Mike Stewart (the other group admin) added him. Could you please look into how this happened, remove him as a group admin, and take any reasonable steps to prevent this happening again?
Google analytics is running in g.d.o a lot of time ago but group organizers have not access to such information or a summary. Does that information is not relevant to our community? Which would be the best way to publish visitors statistics publicly?
The Quickstart group is now at http://groups.drupal.org/quickstart
The old path alias was a pain to type manually but I re-created it so it will continue to work.
