Re: Buildout recipe and OCAby
Camptocamp France SAS, Alexandre Fayolle - Camptocamp
I'm +1 for having the "anybox" buildout recipe maintained as an OCA project. There are a few technicallities to resolve (mainly the issue of the naming, as out policy says 'no partner name in the project name'), but this can certainly be ironed out.Thanks for creating, sharing and maintaining that recipe. It saved me days.

Dear community, I have been for several years now the maintainer of the Odoo buildout recipe (anybox.recipe.odoo)  but recently, my schedule has become an impediment (in part because I only work part-time). So, after I had took too much time merging some simple PRs, I decided to give commit rights to two persons outside of Anybox, and start applying a PR workflow to my own major changes. Those two persons are Laurent Mignon and Sandy Carter, two of the most active contributors, but that decision was not driven by a deep political analysis : it was meant to be done immediately, without delay imposed by actual thinking about it, just to cut the possible contention. I didn't even ask them before sending the Github invitation. Just to be clear, I don't consider that move a mistake by any means, and I am not aware of any political bad vibes. Yet, it's a quickfix, and I think a proper governance would now be in order, and that's what OCA is meant for. I already checked that there's no opposition at Anybox to bring the recipe(s) under OCA control (that was fast). Now, what would the OCA itself think of it ? I suppose we'd have a few details to iron, that could take some time. I don't imagine resigning from the maintainer position, for starters. In the meanwhile, well, outside Anybox, Sandy and Laurent have the power to avoid deadlocks. PS: I'm actually softly off till the end of July, which means I work only for emergencies or to finish stuff that mustn't linger in half-done state   and before it, that was anybox.recipe.openerp, which is the proper one to use for versions
