Regarding translations, Martin Trigaux is working on hosting translations outside of the main Odoo repo (for a future Odoo version).

When that work we'll proably use it for OCA too.

A long time ago I used to agitate for 1 module per repo, I even did it for my own stuff and quit pretty fast. Disaggregation/aggregation at build time is far easier than at dev time. 

A little off topic, a split I'd like to see / always wondered about (and in core as well) is a separation of translations from code. It clouds commit history and last time I checked made up ~80% of the size of Odoo codebase  (which admittedly was v7, 267mb with just en_us vs 1.2gb). Also, and I'm guessing here, I imagine translators aren't so much topic repo focused. I don't know how practical it is or how it might work, but it would have a far greater effect on build sizes than 1 module per repo.

Also off topic, but I wouldn't mind starting to see more of an Apps approach. Not for everything, but I feel certain repos lend themselves to this. I kind of did it a little bit recently in account-financial-reporting repo although the reasoning there was more to do with deduplication of effort. For example - mis_builder. Have mis_app with a config screen with the option to include budget. Or web repo, so much good stuff there but all little modules doing one thing each, a Web Interface app with a bunch of options. Or server-tools.

Totally agree with you Stéphane.


We didn’t have any issues working with one repo multiples modules in 6 years.

I have 10 years doing it on this way, and even now I try to use as less branches/repos as possible.

BTW, imagine for ones second 1 repo 1 module will become Odoo maintainance as complex as maintain an **apt** repository..

IMHO innecesary overload.

Asunto: Re: One module one repo


My current point of view is that one module one repo is totally impractical indeed.


The reasons are:

- infrastructure maintenance and scalability as Pedro mentioned

- also very important is that the repos must be designed around a mix of functional consistency and willingness of a team and PSC representative to maintain their content


Deployment considerations are irrelevant to the design the repo structure IMO.


Best regards,

This simply can't be done due to OCA infrastructure, with runbot, Travis, Weblate, etc and all the maintenance burden they bring.
