Re: Odoo v9 Community and Enterprise editions

I'd strongly recommend we avoid writing up new licenses; we currently 
have already quite a few proven licenses to our disposal. Such as LGPL, 
which is perfect for software libraries in general, where a permissive 
license is often desirable. And we have the AGPL, which seems to be the 
best protection for a web application like the OCB & OCA to assure the 
Odoo ecosystem remains free-as-in-freedom.

Whatever Odoo S.A. will decide for their licenses, creating just another 
license wouldn't help to solve the mentioned problems. Let us hope S.A. 
finds a good business model and stays in the free & open world so we can 
all thrive!

best regards,

Wouter
