One take away is what is missing: training, testing and communication efforts (but we are rolling out some new strategies around this as a follow up from 2014Camp)
Paul - Forums to act on this data?
Michael - would scrub and summarize the feedback then publish these results publicly, then want to to map highlights for getting involved in the "organization plan" we have been working on
Paul - my big take aways are that leadership ideas for growing organization are in line with community feedback and we will not be able to please everyone though
Partnership: ThoughtWorks/Bahmni Project - Chris (via email)
Chris - Unfortunately we are experiencing rolling blackouts in South Africa at the moment and Cape Town has no power this evening and only Edge on the cellular network. So, I won’t be able to connect to the conference call. I had a call with Emerson and Shruthi from the Bhamni project regarding their partnership requirements. We started off with requirements in three defined areas that can be elaborated, in future.
Please could the Leadership Group let me have feedback on the points, below. I said I would get back to them tomorrow.
There is a requirement to align the Bahmni roadmap more closely with the OpenMRS roadmap. Bahaman would benefit from better predictability and efficiencies in terms of leveraging community-driven development. OpenMRS would benefit by getting contributions of code developed as part of the Bhamni project. Is OpenMRS open to having such an arrangement formalised? If so, I will start to work on this.
Bhamni project would like to strengthen its communications within OpenMRS. Would it perhaps be possible to have a Talk channel dedicated to the Bhamni project? Does this make sense?
Bhamni project would like to strengthen its membership of the OpenMRS community. Would it be an idea to consider a distro (=Bhamni)-specific community (similar to regional-specific communities like eSaude for Mozambique) with a community lead (like Pascal for eSaude) and possible participation in OpenMRS Community leadership program?
For next week
