3 More User Group Projects

Since my previous report, an additional three user groups have moved to projects this week in the "Great OpenSolaris User Group Migration" going on out there: Turkey, Israel, and Silicon Valley. So, here are the totals to date: 36 user groups have migrated, 11 are currently migrating, and 4 are not responding. I deleted the infrastructure for about a half dozen abandoned groups a couple of months ago.

Three things are occurring simultaneously here: (1) we are merging the User Group Community, the Immigrants Community, and the Marketing Community, (2) we are moving the existing user groups to be projects, and (3) we are using the OGB project proposal process to create infrastructure for new user groups. So, it's been confusing at times, no question about it. But we are absolutely making progress now. When this is over we'll have about a dozen fewer groups, but those groups will be more active, they'll have significantly better infrastructure and potential for growth, and we'll all have much better data showing who's doing what and where. I'll have to write up a "lessons learned" post when this is done because I have surely learned a lot.
