Re: Help needed: Wikipedia page deleted

so, I got hold of the last version of the page and I have been working 
on getting it to a state for reinclusion, you are welcome to help, it 
isn't there yet.

Some notes:
Stuff has to be reliably sourced to a reputable third party, even if 
that makes it out of date or wrong. I changed the number of apps claimed 
to be "more than 3000" even though the real number is closer to 5500. 
The 3000 claim had been referenced in a reliable non-primary source.

Primary sources are a big problem apparently, even the awards listed on 
the Earnst and Young site and the Delloitte site can't be mentioned 
unless a reputable journalistic source unconnected with *both* Odoo and 
the award giver mentions them. So if there was a news article somewhere 
else talking about the awards then great, but pointing to the actual 
list of awards is not OK.

Laundry lists are bad, that was the description of the big list of 
capabilities, it has gone.

Other articles break these rules, that is not relevant. Many other 
articles about ERP software are *shockingly worse* they will probably 
end up being deleted/cleaned up but that isn't our problem and isn't 
relevant to whether this page deserves to exist. Other articles 
reference primary sources all over the place, such as the article about 
wordpress. This also isn't relevant, it seems that articles can have 
some primary references once they have unambiguously established that 
they are a notable topic.
