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

Hi All,

theme_louma was confirmed as infringing with:

        #'website_sale_wishlist',
        #'product_brand',
        #'website_product_brand',

website_faq has a dependency commented out, faq, but I do not recognize it as OCA. If someone is a license holder on this module, or if you know the license holder, please speak up and I will continue forward with that claim for you.

FYI the infringing authority_verify_signup_email was removed from the store. We are still pending an investigation on the other two.

Eric that sounds like a real good plan. No lawsuit for the time being
but "Black Sheep Announcement"... Can you bring that idea forward in
the board meeting ?
