Re: Odoo v9 Community and Enterprise editionsby
I agree with Anders, full open source software is the reason why so many partners came to odoo in the first part and so with the marketing monkey money of the venture capitalists.
The Odoo business model was quiet clear before but now it become totally non-understandable.

Looking at other free software project this kind of changes has made a lot damage to the community and the product in whole. For example; we have done a lot of work with "crm_voip" modules - but as a paid module or a module in "Enterprise Edition" its impossible to interact the way that makes free software rock. To continue our work for customers that uses Asterisk with Odoo we have to build another infrastructure which is double work, increases cost and slows down the development. The development of "enterprise edition" reduces the transparency and will not help customers who does large investments in Odoo-development to do that in an efficient and strategic manner. I'm aware that OpenERP SA needs business offerings - and thats good in general - but all changes that makes it harder to contribute to Odoo and work in interaction with OpenERP SA and other contributors make the product weaker and kills cooperation. Give as better better offerings to resell to our customers instead. I sincerely hope that this nonsense ends before OpenERP SA completely destroys their ability to make Odoo to a profitable system for all parties.
