Sahana Critiques and Module Ideas


  • History - placed here temporarily until an appropriate namespace is created, perhaps project:, so we can have a project:history page


Release Naming Convention

  • ReleaseNaming - also placed here temporarily until a better place is found. A page to brainstorm ideas on naming conventions for releases and release candidtates.
  • ReleaseNames - On 13 Dec 2009 we voted to use translation of the Sanskrit word 'Sahana' into various languages as the naming convention for the Sahana project. This is an area to discuss and suggest different languages to be used as release names.
