Re: Could oca adopt report_webkit before v8
I will just quote you:
Here is my plan:
we keep "server/report" and "report_webkit" unchanged, but every report in
our addons are converted to qweb.
we remove "server/report" and "report_webkit" from our repository, "
report_webkit" will be moved to a community repo (like we do for every
It is a normal release cycle to deprate then to remove, even in OpenSource.
Such abruts abandon of addons may not entrust people with your partner
I also think some PR where made on branche 7 if I'm correct.
As I said previously, I was was my self not against abandonning totally
report_webkit if we can convert all our work to qweb report.
But doing so will take the community some time to do it.
Now, if you really do not want to maintain it and the question is just
rethoric, Camptocamp/community will maintain the module.
