Bug Hunters :bug::bug::bug::bug:

Many users who faced issues and discussed them with the community were very helpful in finding bugs. These bug hunters create Jira issues (with link to the CoP post) and support the development of DHIS2.

Feature Finders :heart_decoration:

Whenever a user is trying to accomplish something with the software but it seems to be a daunting and complicated task, the CoP is a great place to discuss if there’s an easier way or an alternative solution. In fact, sometimes there is a workaround, and sometimes it turns out to be a feature request to be added in future DHIS2 releases. After discussion with the community, these Feature Finders create feature requests to shape the future of DHIS2!

Top Community Topics of the Month

1) Digitization of Tanzania Mainland Health Information System: A ten years journey for strengthening health care for national impact

Thank you HISP Tanzania for sharing with the DHIS2 Community your experience implementing DHIS2 in Tanzania. You’re an inspiration to the DHIS2 global community. :clap:

2) Spring4Shell Vulnerability Update

The were several topics with HOTFIXES and instructions on how to protect instances from this vulnerability. It’s great to see this as a top topic because it assures us that the community is aware of the DHIS2 security processes and efforts.

BTW, HOTFIXES?! It might be worth mentioning that the DHIS2 Release Team will be using a new versioning convention:
