Sounds good.

I realize most of 9.0  "un-ported" is there but if you can't use any real connector because of it, its not really a full "branch" IMHO.

Focus on the Docs.  It is not a Connector only issue.  It is pretty much the situation through OCA as a whole.

In some ways the earlier approach of not even going "public" with the Connector probably kept some of the confusion down, though it created other confusion.

Have the README be clear and all should be ok.  
I do think the  GITHUB WIKI for Each Repo would be helpful for bringing the ecosystem together a little bit more and allow going beyond the brevity of a normal Readme file.

Ok Raphaël, reading again what I said, it does sound ridiculous :) I
am not saying odoo/odoo 9.0 is bugless today. It isn't of course, and
accounting specifically got funny (see Frederic Clementi's discussion
on the new OCA accounting mailing list for details).

My point was more against Landis Arnold's proposal of a 9.0-DEV branch
for OCA modules. For OCA modules we have for 9.0 the same (relatively
high) standards we had for 8.0, and the modules that are gradually
being merged into the 9.0 *OCA* branches are as stable as the ones for

They are fewer because Odoo 9.0 is recent and work has just started.
This is not a reason to "hide" them for fear of putting off people
IMO. It is the nature of things. We can of course always improve docs
and readmes to give all the information to newcomers.
