At some point, we should stop freaking out and move forward...
I like AGPL, but I am not closed to try LGPL because of the tired discussion, the "excesive" freedom of AGPL stop some good investments also (beleive it or not it happens) and then the point is that there are some markets/ topics and points where you must try something mixed (we do it everyday BTW).
At the end I really want to see how much code is produced by the ones which own the FSF I always think they talk more than what they really do.
And @fabien we support you as usual, but please manage a better migration/upgrade path with more backward compatibility and/or planning, it is mandatory have at least 1 year to migrate between huge process changes not from today to tomorrow.
But I need to accept it is becoming better and better with the time, OCA is doing an extraordinary job also, we need MORE people contributing there too, it is the unique real shield against any fear (even If I am confident that nothing will happen) we must encourage the development there, fix issues, approve PR and so on, from time to time the community version and the commercial version will be really working toghether in all aspects (even the commercial one) (the market will put us there I am sure of that).
I respect the ones that love Free Software, but you can not think you will build a huge software for huge enterprises to manage their huge quantities of money just downloading some bunch of code "for free" and expending 1% of the time/money that that software really cost , right? then stop FUD and start build code "With Freedom" everysingle day.
We have 5 years from now on this, and honestly I am tired of leechers thinking on freedom for them but slavery for the ones that REALLY make software/market and at the end the REAL job, just because they "user" the software instead "build" community... Everybody is important on this environment from the user to the editor, and in the chain nobody effort should be understimated and underpaid.... just until EVERYBODY understand that, we must work with laws of ugly things like "Market" . "Competitors" and "PRICE" ....
Regards and again-....
"Feeding the troll" sorry!
