Hello everyone,

We have made good progress in the migration of OCA projects from

contributed in the effort! There are still a few projects to migrate,
your help is welcome on this, I'm confident this will be done in the
coming weeks.

Now September is there, people are back from vacation, and it is time to
move on and to get the teams organized.

If you look at the OCA web site, you will find a list of Teams, with the
related github projects at

Steering Committee (PSC).  The role of the PSC is:

* have a final call as to which modules are included in the project
* have a final call on PR approval and merging
* manage the communication related to the project

The role of the project leader is:

* check the CLA of team members and contributors
* plan the roadmap of the project
* ensure OCA conventions are followed

mail to with subject 'applying for PSC of
', and saying you would like to join the PSC. Don't forget to
tell us which team! In order to facilitate the processing of the mails,
please make a separate mail for each project.

Note that to be part of a PSC, you don't need to be a member of the
association (although this is nicer), but you need to sign the CLA.
See for the
subscription link and the CLA link).

Thanks for reading this (long) message. Ask on the list if any of the
above is not clear.
