Re: What was the logic behind the pricelist price percentage rule change from odoo 8 to 9?

I don't think you have the correct lines as those 2 lines are roughly functionally equivalent.

For example in v8 to add 20% then percentage is 0.20 in v9 to add 20% then percentage is -20.0. Plug in any number for price and you will see.  Pick any discount, for v8 divide it by 100, for v9 multiply it by -1.

To my mind the v9 way is more correct from a user perspective.  A negative discount should increase the price.

I did this question in the Odoo forum a few days ago, but I think for discussion it's better the mail list, and because I saw more activity of people more involved in the development and use of the framework.

This is the link to the forum question but I'm going to paste here again for quick reading.

I want to add a profit percentage in odoo 9 with a pricelist rule formula, and searching in web I only find the option to do it but with the odoo version 8, because the formula in code changed to odoo 9.

Here is the code line in odoo 8 for that rule:

and here is the current code line in odoo 9:

Because that change I have no option to add to the price a percentage to set a margin profit in a pricelist rule, maybe in odoo 9 there is another way to accomplish what I want or not. Some of yours can give me a great answer to this.
