A May 9, 2012, update to the MCommunity Directory included this enhancement along with some minor bug fixes:

Updates on April 14, 2012, and April 23, 2012, included work in preparation for the synchronization of MCommunity groups to Google UMICH. This included changes to the user interface. Google only allows two special characters in group names (hyphens and dots), whereas MCommunity allowed several additional special characters. Also worked with owners of existing groups that cannot be synchronized to Google until their names are changed to remove special characters that Google does not allow. A number of changes and additions were made within MCommunity to enable group synchronization. Initial snchronization of groups was done during the first two weeks of May.
