Subject Concerned about quiet dev@
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2016 09:21:28 GMT
Hello all,

I am growing concerned about the lack of activity on dev@. There is *no*
conversation occurring. Just JIRA notifications and pull requests.

A community needs conversation. Discussion. Consideration of topics,
roadmaps, and feature development. From what I'm seeing on dev@, none of
this is occurring.

Some may suggest "discussion is occurring in JIRA", but that does not form
a community. That is a bunch of silo'd conversations on very narrow,
singular topics.

I raised the concern about JIRA-focus a while back, and am seeing the
outcome now. To *participate* requires JIRA access, or a GitHub account for
pull requests. The ASF prefers a *much* lower bar: send an email. With no
discussion occurring on dev@, it appears very difficult for a potential
participant to "step in" and begin to work with the Fineract community.

I'll repeat: please use dev@ more, and JIRA less.
