The report_py3o is an Odoo report engine based on LibreOffice. It allows for non technical users to created reports using ODT or ODS documents. Find more details in the reporting engine repository.
A Project Steering Comitte for the Vietnamese localisation was created, with Jean-Charles Drubay as OCA representative. You may want to visit the PSC page.
Congratulations to the Thai community who got its first modules merged into the OCA. We hope that many more will come. Check the work done in the repository.
We found on the web an interesting article to guide newbies to create their first Github Pull Requests. More after the link.
From the Association
The board has decided to migrate the OCA Odoo server from version 8.0 to 10.0. A proposal was approved, and the migration project has begun. The project will contribute the migration scripts to OpenUpgrade, covering all modules used by the OCA, and then the OCA instance will be upgraded. We find that financing OpenUpgrade is a great contribution for all the community. You can follow the progress on the coordination GitHub Issue.
Just before the Spanish Community event, "Jornadas Odoo", an OCA code sprint is being organized. It will be held on May 29th, 30th and 31st, in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The event is already a success: we have 90+ registrations, many people travelling from other countries. And for the first time, we will have a team from the Odoo R&D team also participating in the event! Thanks to Jordi Ballester, from Eficent, for all the organization work. There is still room for more participants, have a peek at the event page.
