    • Here's a list of what has been accomplished this year:
      • We have a new revamped, more modern website.
      • iDempiere has now clear mission and vision statements, together with the project values. So we communicate better to the world what is iDempiere and what it means.
      • The project counts now with a Code of conduct which guides community members on how to interact with others, it also communicates clearly that we welcome everyone.
      • We have now three pages inviting people to get involved in the project and explaining how they can join:
      • https://github.com/idempiere/idempiere/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
      • https://wiki.idempiere.org/en/Contributing_to_iDempiere
      • https://www.idempiere.org/makeidempiere/

      • The iDempiere trademark is now registered in Europe.
      • The project has now a powerful slogan, chosen by the community!
      • We have now marketing tools for different stakeholders, presenting them the benefits of iDempiere for their particular group:

      • https://www.idempiere.org/for-companies/
      • https://www.idempiere.org/for-implementers/
      • There are 9 pages praising and showing the month's contributions, giving credit to every person that contributes to the project.
      • The community has chosen 9 iDempiere heroes during this year, coming from different kinds of contributions and praising those who make iDempiere possible.
      • We have held 4 triage days, which helped significantly to reduce the number of tickets in JIRA and cleaned up the tickets queue.
      • We've created the Let's join efforts page to motivate community members to work together, this approach has been working pretty well with the REST API plugin.
      • We have 2 testimonials and 4 articles on the show case page that shows how great is iDempiere.
      • The project has now a list of top makers and we have interviewed them to understand them better.
      • The project has now an open spreadsheet that allows every community member to see how the money moves in the project.
      • We've been tracking most of the contributions actively each month
      • We have video tutorials, contributed by the community, on the official youtube channel
      • We have a page praising the contributors as well as one presenting the founders to the world
      • We are helping to change the Release process to involve the community in the process and test thoroughly.
      • We are pursuing to improve (still a WIP) the sponsorship mechanism and motivate people to donate more to the project to be sustainable in the long term.
      • We've been creating a weekly list of changes in the core to inform people of what's happening in the project.
      • There's an ongoing initiative to work together with Universities to boost the project and attract students.
      • The first test community day will be held next week
      • The community seems to be more active than before and more participative in forums and community days.
  3. Community Test day
    • We pursue to do follow to approaches:
      • A formal one through specific test cases generated by Fitness (thanks to @muriloht for setting up the server)
      • A kind of "free-to-test" one, where users can test the system as they would normally use it, for this we provide a template and a document that they must fill with the test case reproduced.
      • @chuckboecking has an existing guide explaining how to automate iDempiere testing: https://erp-academy.chuckboecking.com/?page_id=2561. We can review it and decide if we use it for the test day
      • After the meeting @chuckboecking proposes to brainstorm on the skills we want users to know to effectively write tests
  4. iDempiere dynamic About section
    • @carlosruiz proposes to change the Credit tab in the About section within iDempiere from a static to a dynamic list. @chuckboecking proposes to do it yearly for every release.
    • Next meeting we discuss about the list to be added to 8.2
