Continuing the discussion from Proposing a sprint to help people upgrade to Platform 2.x (Mozambique tried to upgrade to Platform 2.x, but was blocked for various reasons):
Although OpenMRS Platform 2.0 was released in August of 2016, and our latest release is 2.1.3, many implementations still run on the 1.x release lines. Some of these implemenations would like to upgrade, but haven’t been able to make time to test out the process, ensure that modules are upgraded, etc.
The purpose of this sprint is to help people upgrade, by providing a common time for people to look at this, and by getting community developers to help with the work we identify.
Dates: 7-19 May 2018
- Implementations running Platform 1.x are ready to upgrade to Platform 2.x
- eSaude has volunteered
- we’re still looking for others to try also
- More modules are upgraded to support Platform 2.x
As a dev, you can work on issues labeled “help-upgrade-platform-2”: https://issues.openmrs.org/issues/?jql=labels%20%3D%20help-upgrade-platform-2
Agile board: https://issues.openmrs.org/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=160&view=detail
As an implementation you can work on upgrading, and share any problems you run into.
How to Join
We’ll have a kickoff on Monday 7 May 2018, details TBD.
But you can also just try to upgrade your implementation, and share you experiences on this thread, or just pick up tickets to work on, even if you haven’t attended the kickoff.
