I'm trying to find a way in D7 to export groups created with the Group module using the Features module. I have managed to export Group Types and Group Roles, but haven't found a way of doing the same with Groups.

I need to do this to create an initial set of groups when the feature is enabled.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Have a look at the UUID Features Integration module, which provides a mechanism for exporting content (nodes, taxonomy, fields) into a features module. It depends on the UUID and Features module. Some more info aboout this module(from its Community documentation):

Drupal's core entities are supported by default within the UUID module, but if you want to export content contained within custom entities, you will have to implement UUID support using their API.

The challenge with the UUID Features Integration module is that its documentation is not complete (yet). So for adding UUID Features support for custom content entities (such as Groups), refer to the module's includes/ folder and use one of the existing implementations as an example.
