See the OCA statement on this: https://odoo-community.org/blog/oca-news-1/post/oca-odoo-meeting-on-licenses-21 Interestingly enough, the legal page of Odoo seems not to be updated yet: https://www.odoo.com/page/legal and states all Odoo as AGPL. In the 9.0 modules there is a reference to the license file, but no such files are included or linked to. So, from a formal point of view the community edition is still APGL? And therefore the Enterprise Edition may depend on APGL modules?
Odoo SA will release the next version of Odoo, version 9, under LGPLv3.
