(for discussion, yet to be approved by PMC)

In an effort to improve communication and information sharing between the increasing number of sub-projects within Sahana, the PMC has approved a monthly reporting policy that is designed to create a summary of the key activities undertaken by each sub-project for a month.

This is an attempt to aggregate all the key activities across the project for the month, and allow an aggregated summary to be easily communicated to all project stakeholders.

  • Each monthly report is to be named Project Report yyyy-mm (dev:project_report_yyyymm)
  • A summary of the previous months activities will be emailed out to Sahana User and Sahana Maindev email lists within the first week of each month.

A sample outline is contained below. All subsections should be ordered alphabetically.
