Volunteer to be the OpenMRS 2.3 Release Manager!

OpenMRS Devs,

We need to fill the role of Release Manager for OpenMRS 2.3, which is scheduled for release in September. Are you aspiring to become a /dev/3, /dev/4, or /dev/5? Being a release manager is a valuable experience for any open source developer, lets you influence the road map and priorities for the community, and gives you the opportunity to make a substantial and prominent contribution to the OpenMRS mission. The job of a release manager is not to do all the work; rather, to make decisions on what goes into the release and to guide the community through the release process.

Remember, we are a community that works together, so you will not be alone in the release process. We have a documented process, weekly project management calls to discuss issues, and several previous release managers in our community who can provide mentoring for you and answer your questions.

Thanks to @k_joseph and @maurya for managing the last two releases of OpenMRS… and thank you for considering volunteering for this important role!
