|| ||Announcing Fedora-Medical SIG. |

The header has already told you what to expect. :)
It dates back to a lazy afternoon of July, when I had my occasional
"spark of enthusiasm" for doing something. So I started a conversation
in Fedora India mailing list. It was decided that such a thing
would be helpful.
More seriously, we do lack packaged applications and dedicated spins
in the area of healthcare. If someone wants to put in a FOSS based
solution into a hospital/clinic workflow, there is no elegant
solution. So if we can have a medical spin, that is going to be help.
The initial wiki page is here.
Simply put, the goal of the SIG is going to be:
1. Working on identifying the various workflows / needs of the medical
or healthcare community in terms of software.
2. Bring together and package the software those fitting in the workflow.
3. Composing a spin to get a out-of-the-box solution.
4. At a later stage, developing any crucial app that may be lacking.
To make it a success, we need volunteers. So please join, if you feel
that it is a worthy cause. Once a few more people are there, we can
discuss and take it forward.
I am keeping my fingers crossed. :)
