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 your reply, we can then discuss details this from early August on.

Thanks for creating, sharing and maintaining that recipe. It saved me days.
You're welcome ! While it's true some parts can become tricky, I don't regret it at all.

Dear community,

I have been for several years now the maintainer of the Odoo buildout
recipe (anybox.recipe.odoo) [1] 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 [2]

[1] and before it, that was anybox.recipe.openerp, which is the proper
one to use for versions
