Re: Why Tryton has so many less active contributors and partner than Odoo

I agree with Ray,

this is not the place, for sure, to discuss Tryton project, and comparing Odoo vs Tryton communities is comparing oranges to apples.

To answer the Odoo part, and hoping it can close the off-topic, I think the first reason why Odoo has a huge community is because Odoo made enormous efforts to build it year after year, sustained by an ambitious target.

I think the Tryton community would probably be a better channel to ask:

Yes they were released, but so buggy the users made a fun with them,

and No Tryton doesn't do so. Tryton has rewritten the kernel and

implemented the component-base upgrade approach which deals with data

formats and xml data. Upgrade is tested as a core feature and for

every additional module and This is how upgrade process is fully

automated on Tryton.

When you upgrade Tryton, you don't run external scripts to re-format

the database.

Yes, I agree, this is the rule of proprietary software.

The customer should be informed of this since the beginning, because

there is no surprise in this.
