Re: [v8] product number, Supplier number

Hi Gunnar,

Even sometimes it costs almost no time. Some module just needs to be set as installable to be usable (without talking about any v8 portage)

First thing to do is always to test if it's installable (and do a PR if it works without changes). For the costs it depends on the type of module. From almost no cost to change one option to make it installable to a complete refactoring with splitting of the module for more compatibility with a refactoring to new API. So estimation would really depends on who you ask and it seems to me that it would be a huge work to estimate all modules.

On the other hand, for developpers, knowing who are willing to pay would also be useful it's pretty much a black box too as it is difficult to know for sure how many people are using or willing to use a module.

The current state is that modules are only ported when a developper needs it in one of his projects. So it is led by the developpers. And I agree this should be more the users who should say which module is the priority for portage furthermore be able to split the costs. As now it's often the first who needs it who bear all the costs and this might not fit to all our users. (unless it is one of those no change, no cost portage, of course)

One way to know who you can contact for a portage is certainly by contacting contributors of a module (they should by listed in __openerp__.py or in README.rst of the module).

Actually it would be great whether all unported OCA modules could have a pricetag & a contact email for porting directly on them (maybe even in the git repo or the README).
If you knew right away what it would cost and who to turn to I guess that would add some dynamic  to regarding 'outsiders' funding the porting process.

As someone who has no idea it's pretty much black box. will it costs you just a few bucks, or hundreds, or .. ?

AFAIK nothing has been launched yet for bounty/funding. Though there might be some plan to do some fund raising.

Maybe it's time for OCA to think about solutions like:

https://www.bountysource.com/teams/oca/issues


No idea if it works for other project but I like the idea that it gives users the possibility to say what is more important to them and even fund the ones who are capable of doing it.

This could be complementary with fund raising campaign in which broader aims are defined.

Dear Gunnar,

I am not aware of of any bounty/funding initiative managed by OCA (I
might not know, I'm not on the OCA board). If you end up trying to
find a consultant, you could try and ask contributors of the modules
you need, or even of other OCA modules.
