Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Begin the process for bringing in Mifos I/O as Apache Fineract CN
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2017 01:30:48 GMT
Hi Ed,

Do we have a demo instance setup for generation 3? If not, can it be done?

I am hearing of the generation 3 from long time (approximately from two
years if I am not wrong) but don't have an opportunity to take a first look
of the product.

I as a business user feel like completely left out of this project without
the demo access.

Is Generation 3 a Mifos initiative funded project?

I myself apologize that I hadn't replied or acknowledged your email. I
thank you for taking that step and documenting all that needs to be done.

I do wish there would have been some discussion but I do think the last
thread we had was sufficient discussion and interest and enthusiasm and
that we could call for a vote amongst the committers. There was a lot to
absorb in the email and I think once we have the vote and software
clearance process underway, we could start separate threads and align
individuals in separate working groups to tackle some of the remaining
items C through H.

I foresee no obstacles in the software grant process from the Mifos side. I
will get approval from my board but they are all in favor so no issues
