Comment (by imath):

 Replying to [comment:6 boonebgorges]:
 > 1) imath - are the hooks and filters in place to make a plugin that does

 Well i think as the main challenge of this patch is group pagination and
 first excluding sticky to then put them on top, what can be useful for a
 plugin is to easily have the arguments of BP_Groups_Group::get()

 so in 'bp_groups_get_paged_groups_sql' filter at line 444 of bp-group-
 classes.php, i would add them after the $sql argument

 {{{apply_filters( 'bp_groups_get_paged_groups_sql', join( ' ', (array)
 $sql ), $sql, $r );}}}

 then, after a quick look, by filtering 'bp_has_groups' its possible to
 merge $groups_template with sticky groups (if put in a buddypress()
 instance var or a global) if on first page as this filter includes the
 arguments of bp_has_groups() function (in bp-groups-template.php).

 But it could be convenient to merge this data before by adding a filter at
 line 516 of bp-groups-classes.php

 {{{return apply_filters( 'bp_groups_return_paged_groups', array( 'groups'
 => $paged_groups, 'total' => $total_groups ), $r );}}}

 finally, to include a specific style to a sticky group, i guess it needs a
 specific template tag reason why the patch has included one

 I understand you're skeptical about the utility to add this in core, i
 have doubts too. I've made a quick search and found no plugin doing so, at
 the same time i've heard people requesting this feature at several
 occasions.. (same for members actually)
