Re: Licence of version 9.0 modules

Thank you all for your answers.

My intention was only to take the pulse of OCA on this matter. I am not myself in favor of using LGPL.

I think the position of OCA is clear. Sorry if it seems like a redondant subject that has already been discussed.

Do not forget the practical considerations, like that many modules came out of extra-addons, some original authors might not have CLA etc.  Think what Odoo had to do for allegedly just 2 pct of their codebase just to relicense. That's with full commit logs and history.  Now imagine that task across the OCA universe.
