Re: OCA: transition from Launchpad to Github
As migration process can often be done by jump of 2 versions, it would mean
that for most of us we will have to keep both git and launchpad for at
least 2 years.
(It would be certainly more)
So even if its a pain for 1 month with MP to migrate:
+1 to move 6.1 + 7.0 to github now
