Re: Better contribution recognitionby
I have tried to lobby for a karma system on OCA projects on Github that, as a CI, posted messages to encourage the submitter to do more reviews if he or she does not do enough and consequentially makes the CI 'fail' to indicate this karma to other reviewers. It does not prevent a good PR to be submitted or merged regardless of the karma of the submitter but it does give nudges.
Given that we require two or three approvals per PR, and there are sometimes more reviewers involved, I'm thinking that one PR is offsetted by three reviews. Maybe this idea should be promoted more because I have the impression that new submitters see it as a task (or a privilege?) of the project members to do all the reviews instead of everyone's task.
As for the idea of paying people to do the reviews, I find that terrible. Doing reviews is incredibly valuable in itself as you learn a lot from it both technically, functionally and socially. As such, it is an integral part of improving the Odoo community as a whole and we should strive to have everyone participate in that. Then again, it is not always a fun job. It would hurt my motiviation to do them as a volunteer if other people get paid to do it (especially if they don't do a formidable job).

For every PR you open, you lose a karma point, for everyreview/merge you get one. When your karma is zero, you can't open newPRs (and maybe existing ones are demoted somehow). Or we could order PRsby current karma of the author.Sounds simple enough, but there are quite some complications: There arePRs which actually should increase karma (greenifying PRs mostly;hotfixes), how to avoid sick incentives (If we for example give extrakarma for merging a PR, people might get sloppy and merge prematurely),how to deal with bullshit reviews made just for increasing one's ownkarma? Do issues have an effect on karma and if yes, which? How to makethe above less single minded technical?But I think above complications can be worked out if a few people lookinto it. This should also have some kind of decay, so that people likeme can't sit on previous work for years.--Therp - Maatwerk in open ontwikkelingHolger Brunn - Ontwerp en implementatiemail: email@example.com: http://therp.nlphone: +31 (0)20 3093096
