The Festive Sahana Rudolph

The modified version of the song is sung as follows: 2 Days before Christmas my true love gave to me:  Version 0.5 Alpha of the Sahana Disaster Management System, Free 🙂 (I even got it to rhyme!). This latest version of Sahana is integrated with messaging, which currently includes the ability to send messages via email and SMS. The latter works via a mobile phone acting as a GSM Modem, connected to the Kannel SMS Gateway. This release also sees GIS integration into the Organization Registry and the Inventory Management System. Excerpts from the official release by the Release Manager:
Sahana project is happy to announce the ‘0.5-Alpha’ release during
this festive season, also code named ‘Rudolph’. In this release, there
are number of improved features like, messaging capability using
SMS/Mail, tight GIS integration, handling confirmation/error messages
and many more.
Also two new modules were added to expand the capability of Sahana,
namely “Volunteer Management” (to manage volunteers) and
“Synchronization” (to synchronize the data between two or more sahana
instances) modules.

Check out the packaged versions at the Download site. Cheers, and Merry Christmas!

  2. What do you mean, doesn’t rhyme!!! Well, how many of the new songs rhyme ;). Is it a CRIME, that it doesn’t RHYME! I’M sure I made it CHIME as well. Give me a DIME and I’ll rub LIME on SLIME if I have the TIME. Anyways, the verse ends with ‘free’ that obviously rhymes with ‘me’. Free-Me, See? Just try singing it out loud with a 2/8 beat… 🙂
