It is already a repository waiting for my personal job in the migration (I
just realize somebody did... cool) ;-):

I like the "vertical-medical" for "Technical Name".

In the repo itself, you can build its own README.md for GOogle analytics,
where the "BRanding" and the "app (module wich install everithing)" van bw
called odoo_medical.

Please don't do that.

Remember the begining of the move in Launchpad, it was hard, and it is
already in OCA since the begining.

Yes you can as you did here.

1.- Propose.
2.- Read feedback.
3.- Make conclusions.
4.- Start Pushing.

remember you here read "Personal opinions", not "Formelly opinions", it
means, even If I am a memeber of the OCA board, my opoinion is my opinion,
we just "move the conclusion forward to be executed in an orginized way."

That's why you are right this time, remember odoo-medical comes from
medical (tryton) which changed to GNU health..... we migrated to openerp
.... call it oemedical... you forkit locally and sent this message due to
improve some works locally.... then we are agreed (I think) here that we
can take Odoo Medical for the App, and vertical-medical for technical names
(just because we stablished this rule on OCA, to avoid "1000
odoo-something" repos it is a practical reason"........

Supositions, but yeas, we can and we would ;-), but remember always (to
complete you point) God and Devil are different from different religions ;-)
