Sourceforge README for releases

This is not really a bug, so I thought I’d write it down here.

When releasing a Platform or OpenMRS 2 release, please take extra care to review the readme.txt file that is also present in each release folder on Sourceforge.

We currently have incorrect license information and invalid URL’s, so we should try to fix those, and review each time for accuracy. :slight_smile:

@michael, can you provide a better copy of the reame.txt with an updated license so that i can update those i personally uploaded!

Paging @burke to see how he’d like the MPL referenced in the readme for consistency. :slight_smile:

For simplicity & consistency, I’d suggest using license-header.txt with s/^This Source Code Form/Use of this software/:
