***2016 HG: HGProjects and the OSHG initiative. Summary, Fall 2016

HGProjects and the OSHG initiative.  
Summary, Fall 2016 
HGProjects has been a continuing theme on this blog for several years.  Now I have added a new initiative: OSHG initiative aimed at improving the software development support for OpenSim and Hypergrid.  This effort will require funding and the development of an organization to manage the software development.  There has also been significant progress on some of the HGProjects I had listed earlier.  Here is an updated summary.
