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

I wouldn't include Odoo SA directly in the suit, since they "hopefully"
didn't allow it by purpose, but i would tell them (as OCA) that i
insist in having dependencies checked and suspicious modules
automatically remove (or even better not allowed in the first place)
and allow them to act before OCA hands in the law suit. However as an
ordinary OCA member i'd also recommend to make up a law suit just to
put an example. 

BTW: one of the best lawyers in the field is Dr. Till Jäger (co-founder 
of ifross institute (http://www.ifross.org/personen). He and his guys
at ifross a worldwide well known specialists on law with focus and
free, libre and open source software.
