Thank you nhomar for your opinion.

It is indeed a valuable point, but it is not breaking, because:
a) Easier is always better then complicated.
b) I'm willing to take on the challenge. So I hope, once testable the scope might be reconsidered upon the final thing.

In the end, we have multiple error layers when someone want's to get started on hacking openobject framework, among them are:
virtualisation, autoreloading, debugging, editor, templating, prototyping, python environment, os environment (external dependencies). Some of them take weeks to understand and solve, and for some, there is such a flood of possibilities that chances are high you just give up on the way. This means valuable brainpower lost. (It doesn't serve us someone finding out how to setup his stack, it only serves us someone contributing openobject code, so let's get them there in no time! And this marginal contribution can possibly be the so hardly needed reviewing activity...)

I think this is why broadening the scope, once we have a viable solution is worthwhile..

Guys, share me some enthusiasm! :) That could be more fun for everyone...

Best, David

Sorry, you just don't want to burden this onto someone who just want's to get started. Even to us it might be an obvious error. It's not the user's fault, that this is not working. It is the programmer's (as almost always) ...

I insist... you are trying to solve an issue far away from the objective of odoo's project.

If somebody want install odoo and is new and do not understand that error, need to google 2 or 3 minutes and will find the solution.

Even it is better if you recommend 2 or three reads before start.

If you buy i.e Mac or Windows apps.... the next next buttons will make you some questions which th documentation explains conceptually what they are, but if the user do not have tha minimal knowledg you can not expect the system will solve a connection to their brains to teach alá matrix!
