Re: Rules for new Posts in the Community

Community mailing lists contains not only companies involved into Odoo development / consulting, but also end users who would like to use Odoo for their business. I believe they are very interested in getting information not only about free contributions but also paid modules.

THere are many useful modules there that for some reason are not in standard Odoo. Good example is Org Chart module (not advertisement, I haven't develoed it =) ). My opinion is that:
1) For paid modules on Odoo Apps OpenERP S.A. need to create digest where anybody can subscribe and get digest of latest added modules. 
2) Regarding community list - if somebody asks about desired functionality, community rules shouldn't restrict providing links to paid apps / modules. It is really limiting users in their choice to only open source modules that may not close their needs.

And regarding contributions mailing list that Alexandre mentions - really that is the good way to isolate yourself from receiving undesired messages. But also it is needed to understand that for people who just joined  Odoo community it is very hard to understand a variety of mailing lists and organizations around Odoo. Basically nobody cares. 

So Community mailing list is good single entry point that is easy to understand and easy to join. Do not see real reason to make it too complex.

For the record, the OCA has a mailing list for its members, and another
one for its contributors. While you obviously need to be a member to
post on the former, the latter is open to anyone, and it is a nice place
to discuss contributions to the OCA.
