Vesuvius continues a lineage from Sahana Krakatoa. This effort is mainly concerned with improving family reunification and administrative capabilities, developing a robust code base, and exploring mobile technologies. The project is driven by international responses such as the Haitian earthquake of 2010, and US-hospital-focused triage needs.
Source code for Vesuvius 0.9.x development may be found as:
- The latest “packaged” trunk release, 0.9.2, for which a manual installation document (though no installer) is provided.
- The trunk itself, which has code commits substantially beyond the package.
- The full set of branches in the Launchpad/Vesuvius repository, e.g., comprising additional experimental or student modules, not integrated into the trunk at this time.
Sources for updates include:
- occasional selected code pushes from NLM's People Locator project; the code is appropriately spread amongst the various Bazaar branches.
- Sahana Google Summer of Code student branches.
- New efforts from Virtusa, Inc. and other potential contributors.
Developments in this project are reported to the sahana-agasti and discuss listservs, among other places. The freenode IRC channels #sahana-agasti and #sahana-meeting facilitate cross-fertilization.
Bug reports are also handled on Launchpad.
