Re: OCA module not showing in app store due to name conflict

I have had a few infringing apps removed from the store at this point. I agree that Odoo SA needs some automation in place, but they are also very receptive regarding this via the email. 3-4 days and the modules were confirmed as license violations & removed from the store. I recommend we do the same here.

According to someone that bought it, another module on apps from the same author ( contained OCA dependencies. This is forbidden, but these dependencies are commented to bypass Odoo's automated check.
Here, the module has the same name, and the same description...

I think Odoo should double check all modules proposed by them.

Hi Yoshi,


We had the same situation with hr_public_holidays, the one from Oca was overwritten in Apps Store by one module with the same name made from a partner, here we had understanding from the partner and he removed the module from apps, but here, since the code is not public to see if they just copied it, this should be threated by Odoo when they register the modules, since the same name exists and authors are different…

Just noticed that this module (for 10.0) does not appear in the app store because of this


They seem to share the same descriptions by coincidence…  Wasn’t sure if the once that’s showing in the app store was legitimate, but just thought I’d share.
