Retiring Modules

It sometimes happens that modules are abandoned. Such modules should properly retired to avoid confusion:

  1. Verify that the module is not being used by contacting the developer and implementer mailing lists
  2. If the module has it's own wiki page, then move that to Abandoned modules
  3. If the module code is stored in the OpenMRS SVN repository, then:
    1. Add a text file called ABANDONED to the project root to explain why the module was abandoned (example)
    2. Move the module project folder to openmrs-modules/abandoned

If a module's source code is being migrated to Git rather than being abandoned, then please follow the instructions at Migrating to Git
