Re: Changes in Ocabot - nobump will be now required

Stéphane, thanks for these details, I was not awar of the non-dev wheels.
I suggest, for version migrations, for the PR to use a version number below 1.0.0, such as 0.0.0, or 0.0.1, and then do the merge with \ocabot merge major.

Hi Denis,

For migration, where you already have the version number in the manifest you have two options
- /ocabot merge nobump: will keep the version in the manifest, the drawback is that you don't have a wheel with a round version number (it will get a .dev suffix depending on the number of commits in the module since the commit that set the manifest version)
- /ocabot merge patch: will do a patch version and a round wheel version number, the drawback being that you don't have a 1.0.0 and you go right away to 1.0.1

Tradeoffs... :)

Best regards,

Thanks for the great job !

One question: for migration PR's, what's the best practice (as the good version number is already set) ?

Hi all,

We recently worked with Stephane Bidoul from Acsone, to improve the OCA bot that makes a lot of automated tasks on github. (

FIY, the merge command syntax will change (PR). Previously, it was possible to say \ocabot merge. It will be now mandatory to mention the bump method to apply, among these 4 options : major, minor, patch, or nobump.
The nobump option should be used in rare cases. Most of the time, please follow the OCA conventions, regarding version numbers, available here.
Remark : if the command is incorrect, the bot will now answer that the command was wrong. Sample.

Another changes are available for the OCA bot :
* Possibility to automatically update history.rst file, using oca-towncrier and fragments files (PR). If you're interested in such a feature, please take a look at that new OCA command, available in maintainer-tools project.

Note 1 : There are also pending works to have the possibility to rebase the current pull request (PR) or to (auto) squash the commit of a PR. Feel free to contribute !

Note 2 : For people that have installed a custom ocabot for their custom repositories, new settings are available.
* Possibility to have approvals required configurable. (PR)
* Possibility to add options, calling oca-gen-addons-table, oca-gen-addon-readme, oca-gen-addon-icon (PR)
* Possibility by the configuration file, to disable bot tasks (PR) and ignore github status (PR)

Kind regards.
