I completely agree with Nhomar. The OCA is not trying to take all the localizations "under control". The OCA is organized as teams per area (accounting, logistics, ...) and countries. Those teams can organize them self as they want and as it is written on our website :

*"""The association is not interested in controlling the association projects. However, the association projects are expected to follow some association rules, mostly around the need to ensure that project code is not legally encumbered (e.g., not stolen, or improperly contributed), and that appropriate controls are in place to ensure code is properly contributed"""*

That's it !

Then, we force no body to push their localization here, everyone is free to chose. If they come, they will decide who will be in the team. The reviewers will help to review their code to improve the quality as much as possible. We'll also provide them a travis configuration to review PEP8 and other code standards + a runbot to allow people to tests their devs from a functional point of view.

By being within the OCA, you will gain visibility and benefit reviews and an organized infrastructure, but your Country team will still be the owner of the code and responsible for it.

We don't claim to be holistic and paralyze the economics and self organizing properties of the eco-system. *We offer a common place where contributors within a same area can have a common place to work together and organize their self as they want to !*

I am favourable to this approach
