Maintenance

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.

Maintainer advice:

Site status update

The site is coming along. We just enhanced the Recent Posts tab so that shows you unread messages in your subscribed groups. Thats just purrfect.

Note that creation of new groups is limited to just a few beta testers. We are not ready to open up group creation just yet. When we do, groups will be subject to some minimal approval. We don't want duplicates and want to keep tidy our group names, descriptions, etc.

Thanks to everyone for being patient with this site. When I proposed the site last fall, I had no idea the demand would be this great. We're plugging away at the final todo items

Need volunteer to oversee locales

I'm half way though an enhancement to organic groups module where a group admin can pick a group locale. I need a volunteer who will figure out what languages are in good enough shape to install on this site. This person should also field requests for new languages, and update existing languages as their translations mature.

I'm pretty excited that we'll finally have a showcase site for Drupal's localization features. Also, Mozilla Group specifically asked for this feature for one of their sites and i just love paying them back.

Maintenance Group . . .

I tentatively signed up to be part of the Maintenance group (tentatively, because I wasn't really sure what the job description was, and I didn't want to volunteer for a full-time position -- this kind of falls under greggles' item number 7 of his post). After I signed up, I looked around the site to see if I could determine what needed to be done, but I found nothing that I could do that I had any control over, nor any sort of documentation or instructions on how or where to proceed. Since then, I've been just kind of watching and waiting to see if that would change, but it hasn't. At this point, there doesn't really seem to be anything to do that I have any control over, other than make comments like this. Is there anything to do that I have any control over, and if so, what and/or where?

Structure Definition . . .

Okay, I sent Boris a list of questions, because I didn't really know where they belonged or if they belonged. Based on his reply to me, I'm putting them here, in separate posts, since I believe they are different topics (but I may be wrong -- I'm sure someone will correct me, if I am).

Is there going to be some defined structure (read: documentation) as to what content is appropriate for the site or parts of the site and where the content should be placed?

a couple of problems I've noted

Here are a few things I've noticed in my initial experience with the site. I'm sure i'm not the first to notice some of them. I'm happy to help to fix these items if you'd like me to try investigating them. Moshe, I know you mentioned that you want to track these kinds of things in case tracker - is that installed somewhere? Whenever it is, I'm happy to enter the remaining items in it.

1. the "r" tab in user/edit - I imagine this is from a profile field that was removed?
