Re: Odoo Product Configurator campaign

Hi Paul, 

i was truly amazed by your talk and the features of your product
configurator and the effort you put into that. I cannot do more but
promise you to purchase a perk as soon as you launch the campaign again.

I think that kind of tool is a real differentiator for the whole Odoo
ecosystem. I perfectly remember the days when Camp2Camp took similar
risk and did the same with their effort to develop the Magento
connector. 

We contributed financially there as well and what we and the community
got back was far more than we've invested. This will be absolutely the
same with your modules. Hope that the others feel the same.

Kind regards

Frederik
