Re: Odoo 8.0: project_long_term no longer supportedby
Acsone Luxembourg, Cédric Pigeon
The main part of the project_long_term module seems to be experimental/unstable (Odoo himself confess it in the 8.0 release notes).
The only interesting thing is the concept of phases with ressources allocation.
Knowing this, would not it be more healthy to create a new project called project_phase with only these features.
Is OCA interested to endorse such a module ?

in very early days of OpenERP someone told me not to rely on official modules - and he was right
What I am explicitly not saying, that the new modules are bad.
- 6.1 -> 7: partner / contact broke about every extension I wrote (can't talk about others)
- 7 -> 8: new wms broke everything I wrote (can't talk about others)
- 8 -> 9:
- new financial will break a lot of what I wrote (can't talk about others)
- drop of old api will break everything everyone wrote
- drop of webkit support will cost a lot to rewrite - at least for some of us.
- redesign of forms broke many references.
what I would wish is to get some sort of stable development environment and at least a (1-) 2 year lead time.
this is a good question indeed. Now some modules have been abandoned because they were only immature POC done overnight for some ephemeral "wow effect" and (like at least half of project_long_term) and this may be a reason active community members have no illusion about them (it doesn't mean some parts cannot be saved).
Now IMHO, a good question people should ask themselves is "how do I avoid this in the future?". And here I think people will not avoid the question of analyzing module quality regardless of their origin. And IMHO is holds true for a whole lot of new v8 modules. You will be warned.

We have a project using project_long_term module. As you know, it is no longer supported by Odoo.
Is there any alternative in the community ?
Should I :- create a new project "project_phase" (inspired by project_long_term but more simple) ?- integrate some features of project_long_term in an existing module ?We mainly need the concept of phase within a project.
Thanks for your answers,
