Re: Odoo 8.0: project_long_term no longer supported

Hi,


In OCA last blog post (https://community.odoo.com/blogpost/oca-meeting-openerp-sa-7/), you'll have:

"""
Obsolete modules

When a new version of Odoo is released, Odoo may decide to deprecate some modules out of the core addons. OCA can continue the maintenance of those modules but module deprecation is not a decision taken lightly: either the module is not so useful anymore or it is not stable enough and OCA needs to be aware of that.
 
However customers’ timelines may not be compatible with the editor’s decision the extra maintenance period offered by OCA will prove mutually beneficial for the transition.
"""

So, Fabien said that we should not try to recover them as it'll be a huge effort the community will make to maintain something that will die... And I agree with him for most cases, we'll have to deal with the removal. OCA hasn't the manpower to maintain everything dropped by OpenERP, and that's a fact, not a wish...

Now, we'll probably have some exceptions, when a module is still largely used by the community and there is enough maintainers.


Hope this helps,


Regards,

Joël

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 ?

What I am explicitly not saying, that the new modules are bad.

what I would wish is to get some sort of stable development environment and at least a (1-) 2 year lead time.

Hello,

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.

Regards.

I've been asking about this and other abandoned modules lately, but no-one seems interested in maintaining any of them in the community for the moment.

Hello,

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,

Regards,
