Re: module migration

I would say that migrating a module, although it only implies changing the version number as nothing more is required, already means to be in contributors list, as you have followed the procedure to migrate commit history, and so on. The same for doing bugfixes. To be on author list, your contribution have to be significant enough:

- Migration requires to redo a lot in the module.
- You add a feature in it that means a high amount of code/testing/etc (for example, adding a full test suite for an untested module - if that module requires testing - should mean a co-authorship).

Anyway, that can be decided case by case on the PR that adds the changes.

Hi all,

I have a small question about contributions in module migration.

What is the minimal work that implies adding my name in the contributors section?

- change version number
- minimal fix on test or doc
- other
- substantial fix

Potentially when I know the OCA workflow, I may migrate a module with only functional knowledge and luck.

Thanks to share your opinions
