Meeting Minutes

Annual Leadership Meeting

  • Design-a-thon: Order Entry on 7 March
    • Darius, Ben, Mike, Paul, Burke for design-a-thon
    • Darius fly in Tuesday evening
  • Topics: Code Bounties and policies around that

Organizing Features from Implementations

  • We'll start fleshing out, categorizing, and prioritizing the features next Wednesday.

Code Bounties

  • Paul sent out an email to the Foundations mailing list about code bounties in open source communities and the impact on volunteerism
    • Paul will send shortened version to the leadership group
    • Michael: The question to ask is if we want to be the management team for these transactions or not
  • Organizations that have developers seconded to work on OpenMRS, we ask not to offer finances on tickets themselves or public forums. Yet, we can create a defined place to have that opportunity.
    • Darius: What about a bulletin board?
      • Paul: Might be better to have a neutral one that's not specifically related to OpenMRS
      • Michael: We could have a link on OpenMRS that sends people to a different site for opportunities

Seattle Discussion

  • Andy: We have some scale-up projects that are possible using the mobile piece. Primarily Commcare and MOTECH.
    • A nation-wide scale-up in Ethiopia could miss an OpenMRS integration unless we make that clear
    • Andy will talk with Paul and Darius to find a way to compose a solution
    • A technical meeting is also needed to define the gaps
      • Some design time with Darius and Paul would be helpful to fill in these gaps
  • No labels
