The Kansas City Drupal Users Group has decided to build a new site to document our activities as a group. We have been using Meetup.com to organize, which is good for exposure. However it isn't that great for communication in the group. Being a co-organizer for the group, I registered a domain and pointed it to a "coming soon" page on one of my Linodes. I then spoke to Pantheon about hosting. They graciously offered to host the site as a Community Project. Pantheon even allowed us to experiment with their Multidev environment. More on Multidev later.
I have been working independently for the last 9 yrs and haven't had to work in a team since the days of Dreamweaver MX! After searching for guidance on how we might attack the project, and getting little feedback, we decided to just dive in! There were a couple bumps early and a quick reboot, but I think we are now on track. So I felt it was important to document our process, and hopefully even get some feedback on how we might improve our approach!
