Reference Application 2.x releases are different than OpenMRS platform releases (like 1.11.0). Platform releases usually consist of alpha, beta releases and have Sprints to complete tickets in a short span of time. Reference Application 2.x is a collection of modules and hence its release consists of releasing all the modules planned to be included in the 2.x release and testing if all of them function collectively.
In the case of 2.4, the release is planned on March 31st, 2016. Though the testing might not be as extensive as a Platform release, a user acceptance testing is necessary. This is scheduled around mid – March to Late mid – March. This is a very short period of time but for this to happen all the modules that are planned to be released in 2.4 need to be in a release ready state and we need your collective collaboration on making this happen.
