Thanks Daniel (et al)

I will work my way into docs and other participation as suggested. Thank you for the invite. <img src="cid:16cb40d33eaba3691f7d43d11f793a715ccc923a@zimbra" alt="Smile" title="Smile" border="0" data-mce-src="cid:16cb40d33eaba3691f7d43d11f793a715ccc923a@zimbra">
 I've been working hard to understand the OCA flow so not so visible till now.
I am not at all focused on branch 9 but I have to work hard to not trip over it  in my explorations.
On a basic level in one has to always be aware of the "toggling" to 9.0 now that it is default.  
When reading 8.0 documentation it is somewhat confounding.  
(All good, GitHub Desktop is fine for documentation and I will get my Shell based "commit comment"
methods wired as well)

I don't really see this is not really off topic (Confusion about branch 9.0 in GitHub).
My perspective though is somewhat of the "outside looking in".

Glad to see the bigger conversation!

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.

Hi Landis,

We all wish that the people who wrote the code could also find the time and skill to write better docs and marketing material.
Please go ahead and contribute with the improved docs: it's in your power.

To get a better grip on the community workflows, I suggest also to participate in code reviews and submitting PRs.
I remind all people reading this that anyone can contribute, not only by submitting code, but also with documentation, code reviews, functional tests on PRs, or even simple Transifex translations.

Sorry all for replying to an off topic comment, but I felt the need for this invitation to participate.
Please go on with th 9.0 unported modules discussion.
