Thank you Cliff! Great update.

If people find/log issues in Jira, do you want them to use “Fix Version: Platform 2.4.0” or “Fix Version: Core 2.4.0”?

@grace thanks ,

as seen here there has been a trend of core and platform for some time (not sure why its done this way) @burke @dkayiwa could there be a reason behind this ?.

Personally i would vouch for only having core 2.4 fix version for the issues in jira and move the platform 2.4 issues to core 2.4

My interpretation is that Core 2.4.0 refers to fixes applied to the https://github.com/openmrs/openmrs-core repository whereas Platform 2.4.0 is for issues related to, e.g., packaging the platform.
