Subject Re: GSoC2016: Improvements to User Generated Documents (Templates) Module
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2016 02:59:14 GMT

I created a ticket on Fineract for GSOC related to the User Generated
Documents module at


The Mifos Initiative previously owned the  Mifos X codebase which is now
being transitioned over as the Apache Fineract project.  So members of our
global Mifos community will be mentoring for both Mifos Initiative and
Apache Fineract for GSOC.

MIfos Initiative will contain projects built on top of the Fineract
platform such as mobile apps, web apps, or modules while projects for
Apache Fineract will be directly developing on the Fineract platform.

To learn more about Fineract, please see:

*Mifos X is becoming an Apache Project!*
We have been accepted into their Incubator program and the Mifos X platform
will now be known as Apache Fineract. If you're a developer building on the
platform, that means you'll now be contributing to Fineract and not Mifos

If you're simply deploying the platform, you'll still use the same
Community App which will be connected to our Mifos X distribution powered
by Fineract.

Please watch this Apache Fineract webinar
to learn more about the transition.

Our development infrastructure/documentation will be split between our
Mifos and Fineract website so please reference the links below:
