Between this periods no miracle going to happen. how do you do migration directly from 8 -10/11 (overstepping 9)? Doing 2-3 migrations just one after another? I mean 8>9>10>11 in one process?
If that would work I guess your approach is the most practical one

Odoo SA should be careful about the appropriate balance between alternatives. The real good thing is that OCA and the voice of the community are meaningful this time.
Just a thought.

IMHO, it is right!, just that no there are any "balance metter machine"! it is so subjecctive now between 7 - 8 - 9 we have too much more information in advance than before, that's a fact.

Prepare a migration is a work that can be achieved in something like 1 year in a  big implementation or less in little ones or more in more complex ones.

Just to be sure everybody is talking about the same, and to avoid confuse people who beleive migrate an ERP enviromet is a simple job, that a migration represent only an apt-upgrade and that's it, in an ERP enviroment there are too mush things to considere and the technical part in only one of them, considere them all is avoid the right evolution, clean up the code and so on.

If everybody is understand that, I think the timing to upgrade is a matter of decision, and a services that must generate income for all involved parts (Customer (receive features), Partner (Service opportunities), Community (more and better modules), Editor (revenue for the job done and more services)), if all parts receive what they need to continue growing up, the ecosystem is healthy and everybody wins.

IMHO I feel we are so much better that at the begining, better enterprise prices, a more strong OCA everyday, better programmers comming to us, and more and more customers.
