Re: Reflection about documentation.by

Where do these so-called functional guys come from and how are they meant to understand what the intent of a piece of code is that they have not developed? Without explanation from the code developers of what the code is meant to do these fictional functional guys will remain exactly that.
I agree 100% with Franck - the lack of systematic documentation is the elephant in the room that is constantly being ignored by the odoo partners. Being sarcastic about it just demonstrates profound naivete and short sightedness.

And about this specific point. Yes may be we are from the old team (wao just 5 years and we are from the "old" team) and the paradigm of who live the biggest change (for good) version throught version, who build several houndreds of community modules need to change our mind to ask for "Functional Documentation" to Odoo <sarcasm>may be we are not seeing the "big picture"</sarcasm>.But this time I really want to see "Houndreds" of functional guys DOING good docs, in the right place as we the "coders" and the editor "investors" are doing them job...I want to see houndreds of functional "experts" written articles (not on them blogs) on the community explaining solutions, analysis situations bugs.....I Want see houndreds of Ne comers bringing new documentations, new buisness models, new new new....But "bringing" not "claming"·Remember my friends: My rights start where my duties finish.
