Re: Welcoming new contributions, Favoring innovation Let's enhance our community !by
Good move towards making OCA a more attractive / vivid place for contributors, but there is still way to go:
Biggest constraint so far for casual contribution has been that there is no shared history, when I use a OCA module as a library.
Therefore the following situation:
- I copy the OCA module
- I fix it in my working tree
- I go for a swim instead of replicating the fix and contributing upstream, because the whole setup is just too cumbersome.
I've proposed that issue (and a possible solution based on git subrepo) some time ago, but it seems it didn't trickle down to the "need to do something about" plane.
As a sidenote, the whole pypi packaging seems just a strategically wrong solution to the adoption problem, as it aparts histories even more.
Getting back to git based workflows would serve everyone's needs besides beeing simpler and more inclusive.
