Re: Licence Change of OCA Modules

Yeah, but Lionel is not talking about now, but in any possible future. To settle a correct way of handling any future change. I agree with that.

Regards.

Hi,

if you see the last official post on the subject,
http://odoo-community.org/blog/news-1/post/odoo-relicensing-11 ,
the OCA board has decided to not relicense any of its modules, but to
accept contributions in some other ones.

I personally agree with that decision, as I too feel that there is no
need to go through a license change for OCA.
