Concerning ‘finding’ an ‘’ website : this will probably not be an issue seen the increasing numbers of OCA members and if we spend a bit of energy to  promote it.

If we add some features to modules (technical rating, functional rating, user rating, … ) and ensure powerfull  search than we have a great tool to implement the OCA mission statement (“support the collaborative development of Odoo features and promote its widespread use”).

I think it will be hard to accomplish this if the OCA modules are lost between thousands of other on ‘’.

We will also not have any control if we want to apply rating criteria (technical, functional coverage, useability,  … ).

The point is if we can teach people that great modules are associated to a certain quality workflow (peer review, quality metrics etc..), then we create a virtuous circle where we educate the market so that it asks for work that produces more quality and ten we will all get a much better productivity in our daily work, implementer and end user. This is why visibility is important, else non specialists will never learn to figure out quality patterns by themselves (it takes years and years to understand what produces great code/great programs, specially in the open source field where things works quite differently and odoo framework isn't very common either).


Do you remember this module?


Hehe long road...

remember the paid "module certification" from 2011?

Nothing left from these failed attempts...


At least now we have something that works now, well users will tell us ;-)
