OCA modules shouldn't depend on non OCA modules, because you can't test them and be sure that they are going to continue the same way.

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:

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.
