Subject RE: Concerned about quiet dev@

Hey all,
I agree with the notification issue, this makes it hard to followthe list in general.
@Greg What needs to be done to push it to a notifications@ list?
We are currently in a process to get all current community membersfrom our Mifos dev list
over to Fineract. There is a lot going on andwe simply failed in engaging people to jump over.
Maybe this is becausewe never officially announced the transition, given some misinterpretingof
policies, or b/c we are still don't really have a release.
We would still need our own dev list b/c of enhancements we are doing ontop of Fineract, we
simply need to state clearly where to post what. ; o)

Best,

Markus
