One of OMRS’ deliverables for the Rwanda EMR 2.x Upgrade project is to create an “OpenMRS Upgrade Technical Package” that will be useful for both the Rwanda upgrade and other upgrades in the future (for any country or instance). This package will include: An overview on how to upgrade OpenMRS; an Upgrade Guide; an OMRS 2.x technical specification document; and upgrade script(s). We currently have documentation from all kinds of distributions’ upgrades in a variety of different places.
As discussed in the last Documentation Squad team meeting, we’ve created a Trello card (below) to reflect our first step: to collect examples of existing OMRS and distributions’ documentation on advice for handling Upgrades.
If you are aware of existing upgrade documentation, please post a link to it here to help the documentation team.
@jnsereko thank you for so graciously offering to take this first piece of work.
