Re: OCA module contributors and migrationsby
Akretion France, David BEAL
A point of view could be that contributors should be someone who can answer any questions about the module in the future.
Then it should have the expertise on the topic to do it.
If you don't want to be disturbed by any ping, you probably shouldn't add your name to this list even if you have fixed smth.
I.E typo like updates shouldn't lead you to be appended to this list.
It's just a point of view.
If you find a consensus on this topic, it could be nice to explain it in README.rst template

Agree that any contribution should be worth being mentioned in Contributors.I think it can't be measured in Lines of Code: a perfect one-line fix can require as much work as 50 or more Lines of Code.Just think how much time we spend on finding typos! And then the fix is maybe just one character.On Tue, 13 Jul 2021 at 17:01, Frederik Kramer <email@example.com> wrote:Hi Kevin, this is not an easy question to have a definitive answer on. I'd say as long as the amount of work somebody put into isn't negligable (say migrated 20 lines of small module) he / she should be named as a contributor. I think we should probably more focus on how we can make the net amount of work somebody spent on the artifact(s) more transparent, so that it becomes a more visible to everybody if a contributor is only contributing a few or a huge pile of work. But even then sometimes the smallest changes carefully thought and crafted do the largest impact.
