Re: Proposal for new repo - Clouder

I think it would be better for Clouder to be separate, on its own
repositories and foundation. Note, none of this is a critique of the
value of Clouder in itself!

But instead I am thinking:

1. I find it a bit out of scope. If I understand it correctly, it is a
tool that was built using the Odoo framework, that can be used to
manage many services (Odoo and others). I don't see it as an extension
to Odoo-the-software, but instead an infrastructure service that uses
the Odoo-the-framework.

It is a bit like if services built using Django joined the Django
foundation and code repositories.

2. The already mentioned ownership problem: it is the product, the
name and the trademark of Yannick and his company, and it feels more
natural that he keeps managing it. Changing the name sounds
super-confusing to me. Also what about future direction? It was
designed by Yannick with others, and what if someone in OCA disagrees
on the way forward? I'd love Yannick to have the last word on his own
