We split because originally in China we could make xcgd work properly as is due to the fact that pip install was timing out. Now we do not have the issue anymore because we build in hub.docker.com and mirror to China.
Nevertheless the main reason to fork was  XCGD bin and Odoo are stored in their servers


Hmm,

Interesting remark...

The XCG docker file installs via wheels, that have been pre-packaged & put on <https://wheelhouse.openerp-experts.net>. This has some advantages: pre-built C extensions, checks of SHA-256 hashes...

A wheel house is supposedly quite easy to build & serve, so the idea could be kept in derivatives where an access to the XCG wheel house is not available.

Worth discussing - I suppose this is acceptable as long as the Docker Hub builder can access the wheel house?
