Re: Mass commit to prepare branching 9.0

The normalizing of version numbers on the 8.0 branch is done.

Regarding unported I personally prefer to do the git mv on the 8.0 branch so these modules remain visible in the README of the default (9.0) branch. Indeed, I think it is important to give adequate visibility to old unported modules too, until the PSC determines these modules are not needed anymore on a given branch.

The identified cost of this is it requires a rebase of porting PR's in 8.0.

Stéphane, go ahead then without normalizing the __unported__ modules, but please take in care Raphaël's comment. Another option is to follow my approach of removing entirely this directory on 9.0.

Hello Stéphane,

 wonder, if you do:
"2 move the content of __unported__ to the root of the repository with "git mv __unported__/* .", also on the 8.0 branch"

-> how will that no break the existing 8.0 PR's ?
Did you think about it? I fear it may even break the ability to rebase and merges these PR's
Or is it okay?

Thanks for your work as usual BTW

Hi, Stephane, maybe we should normalize also version number of __unported__ dir to 7.0.x.y(.z). All modules in __unported__ for 8.0 branch are assured to be 7.0 because a delete was done on 8.0 branch for modules not migrated from 6.1.

Are you 100% sure there is not any old 6.1 modules in 8.0/__unported__? Moreover I find it a bit weird to have unported modules with a greater version number than the last ported version. And I'm lacking time... ;)

So if you don't mind I'll proceed.

By the way, I'm finding here and there some remnant code in unported for modules that are ported (example: hr_expense_sequence in OCA/hr). In such cases I remove the code in 8.0/__unported__ directly without PR.
