Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
The comments on the field_group_read_groups() function says the elements of the $conditions array are name, bundle, view_mode. In fact they are entity_type, bundle, mode, essentially they match the field name in the field_group table for the call to ctools_export_load_object().
In theory you could also pass group_name and parent_name if you wanted.
