By "unrelated I mean "not specifically designed to require" by the AGPL licensed module.
IMHO the "system library" is not even needed to protect unrelated code from AGPL contamination.
But it reinforces the idea that AGPL should allow contaminating unrelated code is not in the spirit of the
So I would like to learn more aboue the opposite point of view:
Can you elaborate on your interpretation of the "corresponding source" definition?
Should the "not specifically designed to require" text not apply for the case of Odoo modules?

Hi Pedro, i think this is the crucial point. It's not Odoo or the OCA but somebody that wants to have the case clarified at court that puts the thread on us. My honest opinion is that Odoo as well as OCA interpret the AGPL wrongly by stating that any AGPL module does not infect all Odoo but i am just a part time scientist and no lawyer. Yet all lawyers i have spoken to, and i explained the situation agreed on my perspective (maybe i biased them ;-). However, i think if somebody starts to sue, this will have a very negative impact on the ecosystem. Kind regards Frederik Am Freitag, den 16.09.2016, 08:08 +0000 schrieb Pedro M.
