Agenda & Notes
  • Review last week TODOs
  • TODO: Burke will create a Talk topic on deciding goals/expectations of hackathon as well as determining expertise of attendees 
  • TODO: Pascal will talk to group from Mozambique to get ideas/goals 
  • Bob Joliffe, Zeferino and (definitely) Pierre at the conference, so the DHIS2 module is def still and option.
  • Mozambique devs: The only idea that really came out was a pharmacy module. They want something simple to manage stock and report on pickups. The spec isn't really fleshed out but it won't be too heavy I don't think. We are planning a tech team meeting on Monday though, so could write the spec then.
  • Run through strategy for each OpenMRS 2.2 distributed module on design forum soon (Jamie Thomas) 
  • Invite Bahmni team to present their OpenERP integration as a form of billing support OOB for OpenMRS RA (Jamie Thomas)
  • Invite PIH to present "2.0-ified" appointment module for potential RA integration
  • TODO: Put out a call for volunteer OpenMRS 2.2 release manager (?)
  • TODO: get Wyclif in touch with David & Audrey to coordinate sprint kickoff time. (?)
  • TODO: Burke to define the explicitUpstream coordinator  role and look for someone(s) to fill it
  • TODO: See if we could make a script to Create a database/table/document to track libraries
  • TODO: Suranga to share output of version diff for CORE with dev list
  • Hackathon ideas
  • DHIS folk may be on site, so DHIS integration may be a viable theme
  • Some interest in a pharmacy module
  • TODO: Who is owning the hackathon? Wyclif
  • Perhaps: add a feature (e.g. rating) to modulus
  • concept management
  • Comments on upstream coordinator
  • Make tickets for the biggun's like hibernate, java, spring
  • Input on community policy for ownership & support/maintenance of modules
  • There are hundreds of modules 
  • Some of our issues
  • How do we determine when a module is popular vs. community-supported vs. distributed?
  • Those modules distributed in the reference application should be considered & treated as our core code (i.e., same as we treat openmrs-core).
  • Having someone(s) who feel(s) ownership of a community-supported module is a good thing.  Sadly, no every community-supported module will have an "owner" or "owner(s)", so it's up to the community to maintain the module as best as we can.
  • Community supported modules include distributed modules, but (assuming we get data for them) popular modules that we will include in the list of things we want people to work on.
  • When should modules be in the OpenMRS org
  • Communicating to module owners
  • Identifying module owners
  • What do we do when a distributed module has no clear ownership?  Is a module owner required for a module to be distributed or community-owned?
  • Getting data about modules
  • Usage from Atlas
  • Ratings in Modulus
  • TODO: quarterly "module review" call on dev forum to review list of community supported modules and make decisions on how things should change
  • GSoC Prep: Focus Bug Fixes 
  • Need to get intro tickets and projects ready for GSoC
  • Next week
  • No meeting - Maputo 2015 #MOZ15
