I just wanted to share some things I think might improve OpenMRS which might be bigger changes so I thought of the roadmap and saw 3.0.0. Not sure if there is already a place where there are wishes/plans. Wiki is currently down so I cant see https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Technical+Road+Map
Some thought are:
- make openmrs cloud-native/adhere to 12 factor apps rules https://12factor.net/ (like for example take configs out of environment variables not files/java properties; only log to console appender not files). This would make it easy to deploy openmrs on cloud providers, ease development
- ensure spring starts immediately when openmrs is deployed (and remove all the static Context, OpenmrsUtil methods). Leverage Spring to get configs out of the environment. Make use of spring profiles?
- use java 8 time api, instead of java.util.Date
Are these realistic for example for 3.0.0? What would need to be done for the openmrs ecosystem (modules, distributions, implementations, …) I am sure you have tons of ideas of what you would you like to see, please share! And what can we do to already work towards these goals
