Hello OpenMRS Community,
We are looking for a Release Manager for OpenMRS Reference Application 2.6, which is scheduled for release in April. 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 roadmap and priorities for the community, and gives you the opportunity to make a substantial and prominent contribution to the OpenMRS mission. This is a crucial role that ensures the awesome contributions from various volunteers to be available to everyone.
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 @taremwatadeo for successfully managing and releasing Reference Application 2.5!
