This is something that we need to fix at board level with better coordinated PR actions.

We have hired a new General Secretary (Rebecca Gellatly) to help the board in the daily tasks and this might be a good opportunity to start spreading the good word.

We should write articles (as neutral as possible) that we should propose to Internet magazines.

I do not want to hijack roles (Daniel Reis and Dave Lasley are responsible of marketing and Communication) but it wouldnot hurt if some volunteers could write general presentation (like the one for Wikipedia) or dedicated article and others to list potential general magazines or expert reviews where we could post them.

It will take probably a year or 2 before we get a "reputation" on the Internet so that we can safely post on Wikipedia.

Your thoughts?

There seem to be really few sources available, so that's an issue.

I do think we can refer to newspaper articles in other languages though - so maybe there has been some coverage in Belgian, French, Spanish or Dutch newspapers?
Also perhaps we can refer to the Odoo books, if OCA is mentioned in them. Books are reputable sources of information.

The draft was rejected again by Wikipedia (Tom's improvement were not yet on 
wikipedia). The main reason is notability and reference.
The reviewer left me this additional comment :
"References to blogs and niche online sources do not constitute widespread 
media coverage."
So we need better references. I have some from CNET and ZDNET but in french
