Good stuff. Said i'd take a look around to see could I figure out what to
do if I wanted to contribute code to the project.

To start I had a look at

That led me to the Contributors Zone -'s+Zone

First question I wanted to answer was:

 Do I need to sign any apache contributor agreement to submit code to the

I looked at the Newcomers to Apache guide (
first and from there that led me to How it Works ( The answer seemed to be

A * committer * is a developer that was given write access to the code
repository and has a signed Contributor License Agreement (CLA)
<> on file. They have an
mail address. Not needing to depend on other people for the patches, they
are actually making short-term decisions for the project.

So a non-core developer can still just do the fork and pull request model
without need to sign any agreement.

The readme on github now looks out of date and I couldnt find anything yet
about what a developer needs to do to get setup locally and running.

Few questions for you Markus to finish up:

I noticed that there is no UI code brought over into this repository, has
the previous Mifos X client been moved elsewhere or dropped?

Does this mean that this apache-fineract project is soley focussed on the
platform/backend side of things?
