Could you please send me the link to that discussion(s) So I can read them if they are new to me - could be that I missed some Threads. Thanks, this would be very helpful!
You guessed wrong. Our customers always get the sources of what we provide. Thet do whatever they want with it. I hope it's clear.
Stop arguing what you don't know of. Our customer receive the code even without asking for it.
AGPL is actually not about your customers! It is about the community of all (public), which means the community should have access to it.
The AGPL license, on the other hand, treats deployment of websites and services as “distribution”, and compels anyone using the software to run a service to also distribute the modified source code. Not so difficult with odoo actually as it is more or less build in and you would only need to extend your info page with the links to the additional modules you are using.
compare the differences and if now those links would belinks to the sourcecode everything would be fine and according to AGPL.
For example, you can make GPL and non-GPL code communicate through a database, web services, or APIs. But the moment you call GPL code directly, your code must be put under the GPL.
