@samuel34 I agree that this current situation has been confusing for people, and it should be priority to fix it. (And thank you for taking the initiative to propose this as a community priority, following up on our conversation on the other thread!)
@dkayiwa did we end up creating tickets based on that design forum?
We had discussed this in the context of the OpenMRS Platform releases, but I wonder if one problem is that some people run into this because they just build and run openmrs-core. (In which case our proposed fix isn’t going to address their situation.)
Also, @samuel34, can you suggest what parts of the current process are especially confusing to new users? (For example I just noticed that the wiki page about installing a UI module incorrectly stated that the Reference Application didn’t support Platform 2.x. I changed the wiki page, but the instructions that I quickly wrote just now are too brief.)
