I can't believe I didn't notice before now that https://community.esri.com/groups/arcgis-python-api?sr=search&searchId=40fccb33-bc41-49eb-83a6-5dac1...‌ is simply a group located under All Places instead of being a formal space/subspace.  Looking at the current https://community.esri.com/docs/DOC-1544-geonet-community-structure?sr=search&searchId=dac2f49f-e052...‌, I can see an argument for having ArcGIS API for Python under https://community.esri.com/community/gis/web-gis?sr=search&searchId=a5597d5b-d603-43f4-8bd0-ec91aee5...‌, https://community.esri.com/community/developers/web-developers?sr=search&searchId=730ed1cd-7ccf-44bb...‌, or https://community.esri.com/community/developers/gis-developers/python?sr=search&searchId=814d9fe7-d8...‌.  Since the ArcGIS API for Python is officially an Esri product, please consider integrating this group into the community structure as a formal space.  I don't know if a group can be converted to a space/subspace, but maybe timothy_hales-esristaff‌ can help answer that question.

https://community.esri.com/groups/arcgis-python-api?sr=search&searchId=06e35172-2479-4111-aafb-5bf84...‌ is a group. Groups are independent of parent spaces. You will find that we have moved to creating groups instead of spaces. Although groups can be converted into spaces, group provide a simpler environment to manage.

I can understand Groups for some, well, groups, but for official products I think it makes more sense to have spaces/subspaces that fit within a hierarchy.  I guess I better get used to more groups....
