Re: Odoo 9 Newsby
"Proprietary software developers, seeking to deny the free competition an important advantage, will try to convince authors not to contribute libraries to the GPL-covered collection. For example, they may appeal to the ego, promising “more users for this library” if we let them use the code in proprietary software products. Popularity is tempting, and it is easy for a library developer to rationalise the idea that boosting the popularity of that one library is what the community needs above all.
But we should not listen to these temptations, because we can achieve much more if we stand together. We free software developers should support one another. By releasing libraries that are limited to free software only, we can help each other's free software packages outdo the proprietary alternatives. The whole free software movement will have more popularity, because free software as a whole will stack up better against the competition."
The first Organization will benefits from our contributing is "ODOO",......" You have to say that and don't ignore it" because:-
1- It is marketing for Odoo product as it will help Oslo to have material with Multiple languages, which will make revenue for Odoo before anyone, (Partnership, Customers, ...etc)
2- If Odoo community members don't contribute, You have to hire employees to do that, or ignore the task which mean loss revenue, market, and compitation with Others ERPs,
We always want Odoo to be first ERP product, but I had contributed with Odoo many times before, Now I have to know what is the diffrent thing that we will gain after that?
Our time is our money,
I am waiting answer including clear points,

The translations you submit on Transifex are synchronised weekly back to the software, this way everybody benefits from the translation efforts.
