[TOOLS] Hello and Proposal to decide upon.

Hello Everyone

I'm new to this list. You probably know me for my outright (and sometimes not so diplomatic ) speaking on the general community lists.

I want to take responsibility in leading a design process in the advent of a converging oca docker image architecture. I probably don't have public record on the odoo framwork, besides of this contribution:, but I basically grew up with docker and contributed on various occasions with smaller stuff such as here: or other bug hunting, there.

I have also developed an own docker sugar, based on bash, here: which has some sweet spots. If you're interested, you can try it out. The "help" command would guide you.

Due to the recent rush in the general mailing list, I want to propose an open design process, a practice, basically copied from the docker ecosystem, where I have taken part in various smaller occasions.

I would like to tag this initiative "Dev & Deploy Tooling Initiative". I want this to be a home for different approaches to peacefully coexist and eventually converge.

I want to take significant charges as to the steering of such process (because I feel, that's where I can excel, granted the blessing and backup of the existing authorities).

If this is good, I would ask you to give it a formal blessing and institutionalize what's necessary. Once this is approved, I wold be happy to prepare a comprehensive design document of the iniciative, a roadmap obviously not missing a "state of the art gathering".

So I kindly ask the members of this PSC to decide on this initiative. I understand the risks, given my reputation, but on the other hand, I think everyone who is willing to contribute, is protected by the OCA guidelines.

I'm also open to couple this responsibility to some kind of patronage, to mitigate the last point.

Saludos Cordiales
