Updating the software without updating the version number is a VERY BAD habit of a programmer. It makes we are out of control of what software we use.

I have earlier asked a question on the related issue: https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/11337

Any ideas how to force programmers to update the versionnumber if they update their software?

Added 19-04-2013: Some idea's:

  • Maintainer of http://v6apps.openerp.com/ refuses to upload updated software with the same version number.
  • Make it impossible by programmatic check during upload.

@Daniel I apreciate all the good work you are doing on this forum. However I do not share your opinion in this case. The question I refer to is about "I see the same versionnumbers. Do I overlooked something? And why is this?" This question you closed is about how to prevent programmers do not update the version numbers. Yes it is related. But it is a total different question. If you close all related questions you can close the forum.

I reread both questions, and they still look the same to me, worded in different ways. But perhaps I'm wrong - I'll bring this to the attention of other moderators, a let them reopen if they agree.

Related or not, both are similar in that they are not the kind of questions for this site: this question is about developers behavior which is an open-ended question. The other question is akin to ask why do people make spelling mistakes or why bugs exist. It is definitely a problem if multiple versions of a module exist on apps.openerp.com with the same version number but the question is still unnecessary.
