Re: New module l10n_vn_account_parent depending on non-oca repository

Hello Jean-Charles,

OCA addons must NOT depend on addons outside OCA. If you need to depend on a module that is currently outside OCA, I recommend contacting the author about moving it to OCA.

That said, I personally advise against trying to reinstate the view accounts as it will introduce a complexity that will have far-reaching effects (eg, on reporting etc) and create compatibility issues with other addons. But there might be good business reasons to do it for your localization.

Best regards,

-sbi

Dear Contributors,

The freshly launched Vietnam Community is considering creating a module "l10n_vn_account_parent" re-using a module which is not an OCA module: https://github.com/steigendit/addons-steigend/tree/master/account_parent

l10n_vn_account_parent would only create data for view accounts.

"account_parent" is an LGPL license, so I guess it is fine.

However, a dependence to an non OCA module might create some issues with runbot. Maybe adding the url to the external repository in the oca_dependencies.txt file would be enough.

Any early warning or advice would be welcome.

Thanks,

ps: link to the related github discussion
