I've just released the OG Group Content module on Here is the description of the module from

"The OG Group Content module creates all the basic popular content types often used in a group setting, blogs, wikis, events, polls, announcements and creates with very little configuration a nice looking framework for your organic groups. There are even special types of blogs for instructors, and there is a syllabi content type available. There is also a nice calendar which displays events or syllabi if those content types are used. If you don't want to use a content type, not a problem, you can pick and choose which ones you want to use on the site."

Here is my .vimrc file for mvim, in particular I don't want to forget how to configure Syntastic for Drupal syntax checking in drupal.  If you type in "phpcs -i" you can verify that the drupal sniffer is setup and available.  The output on my screen from phpcs -i is "The installed coding standards are Drupal, MySource, PEAR, PHPCS, PSR1, PSR2, Squiz and Zend"
