The goal of this sprint is to get an alpha release of the occ module and server ready for real world testing.

One minute overview

The occ is a mechanism to share concepts between different installations of openmrs. Users push the concepts they create up to the central occ server. The occ server aggregates them and makes concepts available for download to users via their openmrs concept dictionary interface. Users can search the occ server concepts independently or while creating concepts. A user can choose to download/import a concept from the occ into their local instance and use it immediately.

The goal of the occ is for it to be crowd-sourced. The concepts are built up organically as users create+upload them.
