Re: Odoo v9 Paid Appsby
Ah, I missed that relicensing aspect, thanks for the clarification. The frustration makes sense now. Hopefully it will work well in the end. I personally am not against the idea of a paid app store, but I understand some of the concerns.

Hi Nicholas, Odoo SA has announced that Odoo will be relicensed as LGPL. This opens the way for closed source apps. While you can also ask money for AGPL apps, it is likely that most of the paid apps will be under a restrictive license.
