Re: Confusion about branch 9.0 in github

An other thing that could be done might be switch 8.0 again as the main branch for say one more month.
I kind of feel the state of v9 regarding to accounting (what average user expect from an "ERP") is such that delaying like 1 more month before talking about v9 would save many users from doing a terrible mistake that may turn them away from the Odoo community.
Well only a suggestion...

You consider that a migration is a 2 commits work which is silly if the addon is a bit elaborated.
A unique commit for a migration seems utterly wrong to me in many situations.

I will never ever migrate 'connector' or 'magentoerpconnect' in one commit. Even smaller addons I wouldn't, when you work on a migration, you often have to make choices, for instance when you fix a bug or when you have to change a feature, this is in the commits that it should be documented and you shouldn't mix them all.

We **must not** break good commits practice just because some users are confused because they don't read a readme file.

Guewen, there is a solution for the review diff:
Ask the author to do the migration work in a single commit, and then 
review only that commit instead of the full diff.
Personally, there are times where I want to review untouched parts of 
the code, so if a also have the full module diff I would find that useful.

In a nutshell:
- For authors, the work to port from 8.0 to 9.0 is about the same in 
each solution (see Pedro's link).
- For reviewers, focusing in the migration changeset commit solves the 
review effort issue.
- For "end users" it is clear about what modules are available.
