There is a weekly Project Management meeting the hour before this forum. We can also hold a second forum during the Wednesday (17) Design Forum slot at 6pm UTC so that anyone who can’t make this Monday time has another opportunity. What do you think?

I was going through the OpenMRS official website and noticed that its using WordPress logo as favicon. I would strongly suggest that it should be changed as it doesn’t gives a very good impression of the OpenMRS organisation.

Hey, I haven’t seen any updates from the website revitalization for a while and I was wondering if the project is going or already stopped? I would like to help or even create the website on my own. I don’t want to lose this topic for the next couple of months and at the end won’t create a new website for OpenMRS.

Let me know how can I help move on

The last few weekly calls were not very well attended and so the conversation moved to the #website-rebuild Slack channel. Most of the focus has been on:

  • drafting and finalizing a brand video to go up on the website as a part of our larger digital asset library
  • taking the content that we developed earlier this year to at least update the content on the current website (still in progress)
  • reaching out to different website designers who can help us with the design
