Subject Re: Interested in being a mentor for Google Code-In?

Hey Nayan,

I know that it would be simpler to have all of our GCI issues in one
tracker but given the transition to Apache Fineract of the Mifos X platform
that's already not possible since Apache Fineract contains all platform
issues and other issues are still in MifosForge.


I will start a larger thread about this later on but going forward in
efforts to clean up our issue management infrastructure, we are seeking to
use github projects to track issues related to the Mifos X Web and Mobile
Apps.

So our coding-related issues for GCI will be split across several issue
trackers (each one however we can use the label GCI as you have mentioned):

   - Apache Fineract (platform) -
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FINERACT/
   - Mifos X Web App (community app) -
   https://github.com/openMF/community-app/issues
   - MIfos X Field Officer Mobile App -
   https://github.com/openMF/android-client/issues
   - MIfos X Android Self-Service App -
   https://github.com/openMF/self-service-app/issues

All that being said, since the primary place in go to get GCI tasks and
where we approve them is the portal maintained by Google, I don't think
it'll be an issue to not have them all in one centralized place.
