ARCHIVED: What are Discussion Groups and Working Groups, and how can I join them?
Sakai activities are mostly organized within Discussion Groups and Working Groups. Groups maintain space on the collab.sakaiproject.org site, each having individual facilitators, or in some cases, several people share such responsibility.
In the earlier days of the Sakai initiative, many groups were created. In an effort to better coordinate activity and communication, some groups are now combining or disbanding. You can find detailed information on the current state of various groups in the Project Management and Coordination Directory at:http://bug.sakaiproject.org/confluence/display/MGT/Directory
