Re: The future of OCB → fork and consolidationby
Eficent Business and IT Consulting Services, S.L., Aarón Henríquez
I mostly agree with Stephan. The reason why OCB was created for it's not valid anymore. So the Community should evaluate the continuation of the project as it were creating it from scratch.
If the project keeps going, the Community should seriously discuss how to manage dependencies. There is the posibility of creating modules that are only compatible with this project, and also create incopatibilities with new standard modules. This is too dangerous and the community shouldn't take it easily.

I really hope I could take more time to achieve it. Therefore it is only my own point of view, do what you want with it ;) I second the first point of Christophe. I also think very useful core additions should be part of an OC(X) framework. > * *Second* optional(?) thing : as more and more addons are > proprietary [...] *merge these community > addons into the standard addons of the community version* [...] I'm for it too. I believe that v10 release and its notes* will help to decide the OCA strategy about this proposition. v10 have very interesting moves (new API everywhere, performance increases etc) but many of the new elements, and huge part of rewritten modules seem to be reserved to the enterprise version. * https://www.odoo.com/fr_FR/
page/odoo-10-release-notesI fear that Odoo community version will be stripped down version after version and that OCA will need more and more work to bring back missing features. As Odoo SA has decided to limit support to 3 years per major release, OCA may need to do LTS on its own too. In my mind, the question is to evaluate where the manpower is better to spend and if OCA want to offer long term full open source ERP experience. Thanks you for reading and as said, the do-ers will decide. -- Yaltik, libérez votre système informatique
