Sorry to write always the same stupid stuff...

Have a look at http://extensions.joomla.org/ :

- Free and paid modules - some craps but some are really good - 
- Very low price 
- And all distributed under the GPL - condition sine qua non to be listed. 
- Customer review / ranking and demo site are good enough to make a selection of modules.

Also good to look at : paid extension are usually served as one year subscription to support / bug fixing etc

Absolutely, its possible to earn money from licence fees even if the modules are GPL.

I think the best would be to have OCA maintaining such a platform...

On the contrary, I think it's better to separate the to things - one large repository with free none-payed modules just like apps.odoo.com or other (OCA for instance) and let other business models prosper (or not) at other places. If you google for Joomla themes you can find hundreds of marketplaces for that. The same goes for Drupal that have a lot of market places for paid modules and themes and one central place for only non paid modules strictly divided. If Odoo SA wants to build a marked place with paid modules let them do that, others will do that too. OCA can build The large repository with non paid modules and become the center of Odoo since Odoo SA doesn't want to have that role any more.

What will the accountability be for paid apps? I have seen so many times developers write unbelievable crappy modules. With your marketplace must come trust. There are already a lot of modules on your 'apps' section but a lot of them no longer work, or are just garbage. Before people can see the code and see how bad it is and choose not to use it, now people will have to pay only to find out that their money is wasted on bad code.

Honestly, in my experience when I hear OpenERP or Odoo coupled with custom developers, it equals bad code generally. The quality of community code just isn't that good in a lot of what I have seen (not picking on anything specific).

There needs to be accountability of the developer, and a marketplace of quality and trust, and I see no way this will work if you just let anyone publish modules for sale with no kind of approval, review, certification, etc. The marketplace itself has a reputation along with the developer writing the modules

Already starting to see lots of people advertising closed source license fees. Super, super lame and disgusting. I refuse to work with any software that I cant modify. F that. You can shove that license fee and closed source.

My modules will come with a compliance check that will check to see if you have any closed source modules. If you have them, none of my code will function.

Once upon a time, OpenERP / Odoo's ambition was to be the best *F/LOSS*
management software in the world. I felt I could help with that goal.

With the *F/LOSS* removed from the goal, as a member of the Odoo
community, let me say I do really feel I've been used and I'm being
discarded.

Bitterly,
