What’s going to happen in the next month?

  • Have the ability to integrate other finance other systems (Sage Inaact, Salesforce, and Netsuite are on the shortlist)
  • Upgrading to django 3
  • Adding refinements to the workflows
  • Adding in the ability for changing strings for translation or org specific terms
    • Translations section on how to contribute different languages to core hypha vs changing string terms (ie renaming determination to something else) for implementation-specific stuff

On docs workflow for new features

  • making acceptance criteria a part of prs (ie not accepting a new pull request until a doc stub has been created linking to issues/pr). @eriol @emlini and @frjo will aim to gather to work out a workflow :fireworks:

Any new adopters or other news from adopters?

  • Digital Defenders Partners is coming :rocket:
  • DFF just finished their second round using hypha :partying_face:
  • ADRC is creating a new workflow! And thinking about how workflows could be created/managed within the admin interface, whoop! :boom:

On the big question of what goes or does not go into hypha-core

  • General agreement that there is no issue with this now but that a formal criteria/workflow for determining what is accepted or not should exist
  • Related section in the guide here:
  • @eriol is interested in discovering existing adopters thoughts.

This lights a fire under me to get the abstracted workflow maps Bernard started and I am working on completed, so we can get them up on the docs and discuss workflows more with adopters.

I might also see if @rosy is willing to meet again to review the workflows they’re thinking about, so I can see if they fit within the abstracted workflows we’re generating.

I have it in my to-do list to ask @rosy or @chelsea for time to meet so I can document that. If I can do that, I’ll let you know @emlini

Any progress on this we.hypha conversation Karl?

@bernard I think I remember you saying you had this meeting, yes? Could you link notes/summary of your discussion if so? I see that it’s an Agenda Item for the October 27th Adopter’s meeting–are you providing that update or is @rosy or @zubakskees?
