Update: We will try to add Platform 2.5.0-alpha.3 to the 3.1 Distro release. I have already made a PR to update the 3.x file; before we merge this (and trigger this to go into the 3.x dev environment) I just need to confirm the plan with the 3.x squad.

Update v 2: We have successfully added Platform 2.5.0-alpha.3 to the existing 3.x environment. I will try to test this a bit later today.

Thanks @grace .Will anxiously wait for your feedback,

Hello All here , as we wrap up the testing phase for 2.5.0-alpha.3 if anyone wants to test out things you may explore the REST Administration work(Though already tested ) by the controllers and the GSOC student , and other areas of choice.

FYI @moshon i think these are ad-hoc test cases which you could verily give a try (GSoC 2021: The REST of Administration - Projects - OpenMRS Wiki)
