Re: New module l10n_vn_account_parent depending on non-oca repositoryby
Acsone SA, Stéphane Bidoul
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.

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_parentl10n_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.--Jean-Charles
