Fwd: Re: Proposing to add ansible-odoo project to OCA umbrella

Who can create the project and github repo?

I think that we should keep the repo name as ansible-odoo because the role will be published in, and we want a name that includes the keyword 'odoo'.

I do not really agree with the approach of a "global" solution. We have tried for years without success, simply because each team has their own preferences and needs.

What I do understand is that some projects are better managed or/and are more successful than others. To me odoo-ansible is a well maintained project. Good documentation, contains full tests, and covers an ample choice of install options. It is a good candidate for people who like Ansible.

If someone wants to propose a project using Salt Stack, or Docker, it is also welcome. I think that we must look for quality and not technological options.

There is a great notice that OCA starts to support IT automatization tools to deploy / dev with Odoo.

But I think that the perspective has to be more abstract, more global; there are a lot of  great tools to do IT automatization today; Chef, Puppet, Ansible, are great tools (don't forget Fabric...).

On the other side, the emergent technologies, as Containers / Docker, and Kubernetes, is a reality in the actual tech ecosystem.

I think that OCA can group all of this projects on a OCA project; can be a better choice for all of us, and to avoid confussion on the "final" user.

First, we have (I put projects that i know):

But, there are more similar projects:


What is the better choice? A very complex question.

But i think that OCA may be the right organization for take a right decision, and adopt one or more approach as "official" (and, better, take various approach as "official").

This is my suggestions... And I can help with this, in a more global project, if OCA members wishes. I can put a bit of my time on this topics for OCA.

Hi Frederik,

It would be great to get some exposure on how to use Salt to install Odoo and OCA. 

The more choices we have the better! In the end the diversity will make everyone better

We did a technical analysis and decided to use SALT to do deployments quite a while ago and i still think that SALT is a more modern and cleaner approach to CFM tools but the community definitely will appreciate the ansible approach as well so  +1 Am Mittwoch, den 24.01.2018, 14:32 +0000 schrieb Maxime Chambreuil: > +1 > > > MAXIME CHAMBREUIL > PROJECT MANAGER/CONSULTANT  O: 1.855.877.2377 EXT. 710 > M: 602.427.5632 > E:  P.O.
