Re: [v8] product number, Supplier numberby Jörg Ricardo Schumacher<email@example.com> - 12/11/2014 04:28:50
regarding that, I have recently contacted a developer, asking for a change in his module, but no answer so far.
And guess what - the module is distributed by your company, CampToCamp. It is about the currency rate updater, which does not seem to work in Odoo V8 because of this:
... File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/modules/module.py", line 77, in load_module
mod = imp.load_module('openerp.addons.' + module_part, f, path, descr)
File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/addons/currency_rate_update/__init__.py", line 31, in <module>
File "/opt/odoo/odoo-server/addons/currency_rate_update/currency_rate_update.py", line 45, in <module>
from osv import osv, fields
ImportError: No module named osv
As of my understanding, it is just about altering the import statements correctly. I tried to adjust the import statements on my own, without luck so far, but I don't have any knowledge yet in the architecture of the odoo backend.
So I would be very glad if you could contact the developers JB Aubort, Nicolas Bessi or Joel Grand-Guillaume and ask them about an estimate on the efforts to port this module to V8. I could then in turn ask my customer if he would be willing to pay for the refactoring.
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.
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:
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.

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.
