- Kenya has asked to have tagging on "Talk" to help organize things

- Philippines and Nigeria are organizing to become communities as well
- 2014 Contributor Survey Results - Michael
- Survey results - https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-MNCVG5Q7/
- 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?
- Organizational Plan "go-live date" - requested by Michael
