Thank you for your mail, and interest in helping out!!
We plan to release a new Foodsoft version this year, and
this will then be deployed on app.foodcoops.net.

my brother runs the Foodcoop "hessenhagen" on app.foodcoops.net. He's

https://github.com/foodcoops/foodsoft/pull/489/files - as that would
help them quite a bit when sorting orders (and I happen to be a Rails
developer :) However, that PR seems very stale. :)
Furthermore, after setting up the dev environment, I found out that most
of his concerns are already addresses in the current `master` branch
(alphabetical sorting of products in the matrix PDF etc.). What's
necessary to get the current `master` deployed on app.foodcoops.net? Can
I help in any way?
Also, if I understood things right, they get 500 errors when they try
viewing old orders, but I have difficulty reproducing that, especially
if the version on the server does not match `master`.
So really - if there's anything I can do, I'm willing to dedicate a few
hours a week for the coming weeks. Just tell me what's necessary :)

That sounds good!

Yes, a release would be a useful thing. If Martin can add some small
fixes before the release then the release is even more useful!
In the long term, it would be awesome if someone (several people?)
continued with the foodsoft API. A good API with a modern React (or
alike) web application would also be a significantly better basis for
further improvements. I strongly suspect that the API project is way too
big given a "few hours a week" (even for a professional Rails developer).
