Also note my comment under the IDGEN module… it would be worth asking the team currently working on it if it is ready for for release and would make sense to do a new release for Ref App 2.7. (4.4.1 is the most recent release, from April, but there has been some OWA work since then) @dkayiwa any thoughts?
@tendomart re: reportingrest… no, just go with 1.9.0. We are currently building some new features and making changes to coreapps and reportinrest, among others, but I cut a stable (to the best of my knowledge!) release of those modules before we started adding our new changes. So go ahead and use the versions I’ve listed, and the new features we are adding now will end up in 2.8.
If 2.7 gets significantly delayed for some reason, we can reconsider.
Also, @dkayiwa I saw you made a new commit in coreapps to fix a failing unit test? I’m guessing we might need to do a new release of coreapps as well? If so, I don’t think there should be an issue on my end… I’m actively working on the various program widgets I added within coreapps, but this is “new” functionality and even if there are incomplete elements in those widgets it should not impact other functionality (and they wouldn’t appear in the reference app unless somebody specifically configures them).
@raff we just had a quick discussion on the leadership re: the issue with CIEL… can you describe more about it here or on another Talk thread? Andy didn’t have all the details, but it sounded like there may be some debate as to whether it was actually a problem with the CIEL dictionary, or a code change that was interpreting actually valid concepts as invalid.
Raff, I think we have a problem with the code. Your examples are of short names which are allowed to be duplicated. Also, there have not been significant changes to the CIEL content since prior release, so I think rolling back CIEL is not going to fix this. Seems like a JIRA needs to be logged and someone check the validation code ASAP.
I identified the cause to be a mishandling of UTF-8 encoding in the conversion script from platform 1.6.x to 2.0.x. I will work on fixing it today and afterwards ask @akanter to do a new release of CIEL for platform 2.0.x. Created issue at https://issues.openmrs.org/browse/RA-1434
Update: I fixed the issue. I will do the Reference Metadata release now…
