The OpenERP modules or app is not compatible with the new versions. A module version 7 does not work in version 8, 9 or 10 the system can not maintain compatibility between their versions An example you draw something in Autocad 2010 and then open this drawing in 2016 works a wonder you can not do the reverse, but you did not lose your job you have designed in 2010. This applies to any software that changed version. But with OpenERP you have to redo all the codes of modules to run in the new version, that is a waste of time and money, the system has to accept to work with what was already done, without having to mess with is already working .

- If you continue using desktop examples you are making you point worst.
- In Desktop formats you have a very limited options to exchange, sell millions of licences and you are privative or copy such formats (even between libreoffice and MS you lost a lot of formats), then desktop examples with not shared files are bad examples.

In modules ¿How do you expect Odoo SA guess what somebody decide to remove/teke in a data model that they must refactor? for me it does not make sense.
Documenting what has changed would be a BIG step forward.

Even frequently it happen to me that I review my own code and ask my self "What stupid thing did I do here?"... Odoo is an API not Excel... stop use desktop apps you are blocking your own vision of what opensource development means.
It would be relatively easy to provide tools that list differences between versions, or provide snapshots before module install and between upgrades.
From this developer could move on and start to create their own update scripts ..

the situation as it is now is plain ridiculous.
