A lot of people are asking more information about the changes in sale and purchase apps in Odoo 9, mostly the removal of the workflow.
I do not understand Fabien (and I am really sorry if this time I start a huge flame here) in what scenario audit you process with a graphical workflow is more difficult than write now a book to explain the hudred of scenarios how should be managed.
IMHO you always plan features based on "Things that affect all odoo" one of your flags is: We make a development and impact all models, then this time, "Why didn't rewrite/fix the workflow model instead of try to recreate all scenarios."
I hardly doubt I will be agreed with all changes done and not because I am betting for the failure of your design, it is just that "What happen to those who with simple edition of workflows records modify them flows?".
NOW: They will need to deal with a huge amount of monkeypatches to re-adjust the workflow to them environments.
IMHO one of the most beautiful features on sales and purchases (and odoo in general) is the workflow, and you simply are wlking to kill a feature that should be redisigned and that's it.
BTW.... just for that my 3 bigger customers will not migrate until v11 or v12 (IF they do) at least, to hard to explain/design in my opinion.
BTW as usual, at this point without any pre-planning again ugly surprises, tomorrow, invoice workflow will be deleted and then we will have "Another monkeypatched model".
