Hi @gsluthra, this is great! I think a good home base where at least some of the community could meet in person would be wonderful! Also, there seems to be a world of opportunity in terms of what you can work/focus on as a group.
In terms of communication, you'll be getting access to your own talk forum, wiki space, IRC channel once you are formally accepted as a local community (refer to https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/RES/OpenMRS+Local+Communities)
Since so many folks have expressed interest in this group, why don't we go ahead and begin the formalization process? this would be a great way to kick off the process.
The first (and most important discussion point) I feel is 'what specific tasks/objectives do you want to accomplish?' We seem to have a good mix of students / devs and implementers among the folks who responded here - so it'll be nice to see if there's some agreement on what kind of objectives everyone wants to accomplish via this community.
@gsluthra Why don't you start listing some of your early aspirations for the community here, so that others can chip in? You can be as abstract as you please. And if there's agreement, then we can move onto the formal application process, and have everyone working together in no time!
