[Neil Horning] Are you guys going to support smssync again?
[Nathaniel Manning] We are working on it, but honestly we really need the community to lend a hand. Sms sync makes 0 revenue for us and has no direct funding, so it's essentially just us as open source contributors fixing bugs on our free time
[Nathaniel Manning] That said, we know there is a major p0 bug right now, so we are trying to find some funding to be able to hire a Dev to fix it
[Neil Horning] I also hope you can get some resources dedicated to it. We haven't been able to upgrade smssync for over a year now because it breaks, and the version we're on doesn't send messages consistently.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi]@willis50317 I think that issue is to do with MySQL 5.7 using more strict date formats. Its a known bug (ushahidi/platform#1177) but we don't have a timeline for a fix right now. The workaround is to either use an older version of mysql (5.6 should work) or to set the mysql mode to allow zero dates.
[curtis gebers] It would be nice if you guys had crowdfunding setup for individual upgrades, fixes or features. It seems like there are enough unanswered issues that if reasonably priced some progress could be made.
