Re: Enterprise: Is it allowed to use AGPL community modules?by
Akretion, Raphael Valyi
And that was just as simple as not signing that evil CLA and all that discussion would have fallen short: Enterprise v9 would have no traction at all and what had to happen would have happened but with much saner conditions for everyone...
Let's say I tried like very to convince the board a few months ago, but...
Now 'course once big players signed it our little voice wouldn't make a difference...

I translate Community Apps by OCA modules, because there is no definition that I know of Community Apps. Any proprietary module which doesn't explicitly depend on an OCA AGPL module is tolerated whoever the author is. An agreement which would depend on who the author is not possible in this context [even if a tentative was made with the AGPL + Exception if some of you remember these times.] What is True for odoo as an author is true for anyone. The third party can add his own proprietary modules on top of Odoo Community or Odoo Enterprise. According to this agreement, he can also use OCA AGPL modules by not putting it in depend list.
