Licence Change of OCA Modules

Hi All,

The last months, community members talked a lot about licences, due to the change of licence of Odoo SA from AGPL to LGPL.


I so thought about the possibility to change the licence of OCA modules. In the time being :
- Contributors sign a CLA that allow OCA to change the licences;
- OCA allows OSI licences. (AGPL, LGPL, BSD, MIT, ...) ;
- In fact, all modules are under AGPL licence; (see below) ;


I consider that the licence change is an important decision, I would like to propose to add in the OCA bylaws the following rule :
"The decision to change licences of OCA Modules must be only done in general assembly and validated by X% of the members", X must be something like 2/3. (or something similar, written in correct english) ;-)

What do you think about that proposition ?

Thanks for your attention.

Kind regards.
