Hi Everyone 

I've created a sprint for our Community Day called 'Community Day 3 -2016. If 
you are planning to work any Jira Issues then please add it to the sprint so 
that we can get some statistics around what was done.

As usual our I will start the sprint today and close it on Tuesday morning so 
we cater for different timezones and also give people some contingency to 
finish off any work they have started.

As well as the mailing lists, this time we would like to try out using our 
OFBiz Community HipChat room to help with Community Day collaboration. If you 
would like to join the room the link is below:

Remember even if you can spare only an hour – it all helps. Let's see if we 
can close some more of those Jira issues, improve OFBiz and have some fun 
working together.

Thanks
Sharan
