Re: website_version 10.0 licenceby
Hi Martin Thanks for clarifying, but so it can be also the base of an AGPL website_version module which will work in V 9.0 community version - It could be adjusted to the community version and than be released under AGPL.

Hello, This is actually an old version of the module. The Apps website always keeps the latest version of a module for each version (7, 8 9 and master) and do not delete it if a module disappear from the repository. It is very common that submitters mistakenly removes a module from their repo (e.g. do not really understand apps just fetch the source from their repo) or that it goes offline so removing a module is done manually. So at one point, website_version was in master community branch (during development, before v9 release) and finally was integrated into 9.0 Enterprise instead. During this pre-release phase, apps published the website_version and we did not delete it (because we forgot) when the 9.0 was released. So it means on the URL, you got a version of the module *before* the 9.0 release. So I do not advise to use it because it is probably not working very well (or at all) and is not updated anymore. We will remove this master version of the module as it is confusing and unmaintained. Actually published the master version of module on apps is not so useful (as changing all the time) so not sure we will keep publishing it. Regarding the license, the module was in master before the release of v9, before the change of license so it is theoretically still under AGPL. When we changed the license, we took the opportunity to clean the licenses (https://github.com/odoo/odoo/commit/0bd45453) because it was not really clear.
