Here is the summary.
The Roadmap Committee has prepared a preliminary list of features to be added in the roadmap of version 9. It was decided that @nabinhait will create a new Milestone on Github for ERPNext Version 9. And then members of the roadmap committee will move these Github Issue in the new Milestone.
The ERPNext community can help in the further filtering of issues. Here is the quick help on how you can upvote, downvote or like an Issue.
If anyone wants to suggest a feature to be added in the version 9 roadmap, s(he) can create a Github Issue for the same (with the use-case), and post its link here.
Once we have the final roadmap for version 9, then picking Issues/features for development will be open for all the community members. Initially, there will be no assignment. Interested members can express their interest in contributing a feature by commenting on an Issue, share their design, mockups and work already done, if applicable.
A code sprint will be conducted to make ERPNext GST taxation complaint. @nabinhait and @revant_one will organize this code sprint and create a post for it. It will be conducted in the first week of June. The Bangalore chapter are yet to share their plans for the developer’s workshop.
The functionality of publishing local chapters has been added on https://erpnext.org. To gauge the demand and ideas for the local chapter head, @JayRam started a post on a forum. It was suggested that foundation should have low entry barrier for local chapters, at it is still in its infancy. Jayram will further drive to form and get local chapters functional.
###Foundation Governance Council
Gunnar suggested defining a deadline for each step involved in the formation of governance council, like ETA for elections, results etc.
Ideas welcome on this front.
###Collaboration Tool for the Foundation
Gunnar will evaluate a tool where we can list all the initiatives of ERPNext Foundation. It will be the single access point to update, discuss and collaborate on various projects. I suggest creating ERPNext account for the ERPNext Foundation, add all the members as a user in it. Create Projects and Task for all the initiatives of foundation and assign them. Your suggestions welcome.
