2023-03-01: Community Conversation: Pathways for Partners & Contributors

When it comes to organizations and contributions, here are a few questions that have been burbling up:

  • What does it mean for an organization to collaborate and contribute to OpenMRS?
  • What is the “secret sauce” - and how do we share it with other organizations?
  • How do we fairly and equitably recognize a variety of contributions by organizations?
  • How do we encourage more organizations to become “upstream” contributors who help build and sustain OpenMRS?

This week’s community conversation is all about pathways, contributions, and partners. We’ll take a look at what we know, what we don’t know, and share ideas about where we go with contribution paths and partnerships from here.

Interested in where this all started? Want some additional context? Read on!

Over the past year, through conversations with organizations and community members, observations and data collected for our annual report, research into what is happening with other open source projects & global goods, we’ve been taking notes to help de-mystify how orgs can engage, contribute, and collaborate. Our blog shared info on what it means to be a strong upstream contributor. A showcase at our May 2002 Mini Meeting explored some ideas on what might serve as a basis for an org’s journey.

Have a conflicting meeting and want another way to share your ideas & perspectives? Feel free to join the conversation on this thread or book some time to chat via mycalendly.
