Subject: Proposing to add ansible-odoo project to OCA umbrella
Dear OCA contributors,

Over the last weeks I have been exposed to a very nice DevOps project consisting of a method to install Odoo using Ansible (

I found that Osiell, one of the most reputable Odoo integrators, has been maintaining an Ansible role called 'ansible-odoo', that allows one to very easily install Odoo  8, 9, 10 or 11 and associated modules of your choice in Ubuntu or Debian, using three install types:
- Standard

Sébastién Alix prepared a nice document about it here:

The project contains loads of tests in Travis, that ensure that the install is good, for the given odoo install types, odoo versions, and Ubuntu/Debian versions. See

I would like to propose that Osiell brings this project to the OCA repositories. 

The benefits would be:
*  For Integrators to have a high quality bullet-proof tool to install Odoo and OCA/third party modules, and a solid configuration management tool.
*  For Customers, reducing the risk of errors/downtime thanks to adopting a standarized approach.
*  For Developers, to facilitate the reproducibility of customer environment on VM's or containers (LXC, Docker).
* For Osiell, to bring more people onboard to the project, helping them to increase the quality, reduce (partly) the mainteinance burden from their side.

I would like to propose Sébastien Alix ( as Leader of this repository.

I have also been looking at other methods to install Odoo using Docker, such as Tecnativa's Doodba (, and they are also great. But I will write about it on a separate email.
