Subject Re: Excel import/export help needed?

Ed, Nayan,

As I understand Nick's question it relates to the current generation of Fineract. He and Dave
would like to start helping out right away (as would many of the people I've talked to today
at the ApacheCon). In fact, it's possible that with a clear task for the POI guys they could
complete something tomorrow for us.

Do you have a concrete ticket for them?
