I also support OCA's board preference for AGPL, but I want to make only one remark: for website modules, maybe we have to think about LGPL by default, because someone that wants to build a cloud businness venture (like Facebook, Twitter, and so on) over Odoo can be struggled to use OCA website modules if they are AGPL, because they will be forced to publish all the source code, losing their competitive advantage. This is something that Raphaël Valyi has talked a lot about, and he can give more details.

Regards.

For what concerns the OCA, the board has taken the decision to keep
the OCA modules with the existing AGPL license. This will be
compatible with the core when it will become LGPL, but not with
proprietary modules. New submissions to OCA will be accepted in any
compatible license, so we can (and probably will) continue to submit
new OCA modules as AGPL anyway. All this, I'm personally happy about.

As for the license change of the core, of course we're all free to
speak out, but ultimately it is a decision of Odoo SA.
