Here's the direct link to what they're doing: http://www.projectfedena.org/
You had a trailing /s in your link which was probably taking you to the 404 page.
However the last commit was a a year back. And almost all code is in one single bulk commit. There should be more visibility into the development process to truly call it an open-source project. Also the code can use some serious love: has fat controllers with logic and close to little or no specs.
Computerizing schools in Kerala is going to be a huge challenge : there is going to be non-trivial resistance to computers from existing school administrations. I hope this does not become vapor-ware and the guys are able to pull it off.
As for the fat controllers, I have to take the blame for that myself. A lot of the awful code was written by me over two years ago when I had close to zero programming experience. I am no longer working at Foradian (the team that developed Fedena), and haven't been able to undo the damage I left behind. :)
I do hope that the project will eventually move to github so that the OSS community (and former developers of the project like myself) could help improve the code. Would love to hear what the folks currently working on the project think of the idea.
See your patches soon :) , Good day.
So the team from Foradian will also be committing to the same github repo or will there be a parallel subversion repo within Foradian?
Any plans from Foradian on this front?
