In addition we will honor Contributors more prominent in the future with a special thank you
section at the website and for sure will add all current contributors there too.

Hey Vishwas,

The repackeging led to a delete and add of all files anyways, so a simple fetch merge could
cause more harm than the creation of a new fork and manually transfer made changes to the
code that never where contributed back.

In addition I'd suggest to do future code enhancements in a way that allows either a contribution
back or keeps the forked base clean and mergable.

Subject: Missing git history


Hi, doesn't carry over the commit

history from

Given that the MifosX platform has been around for a few years now,

numerous organizations maintain multiple forks of the same . Without the

commit history being carried over, upgrading these forks becomes an

unnecessarily painful process.

Also, the contribution history of around 78 volunteers to the original

MifosX project is lost.

Is there any reason for initializing fineract as a new git repository ?
