Re: Webkit Reports (and other deprecated modules) future


Hi Lionel,

we also have this papersize problem on one project. Just want to print
label from label printer.

And i totally agree sometime a new module is nice. But some time it mean
you have copy&paste of the original module, than you can make better a fork.
So in this case the "no new feature to stable" policy is stupid. In this
case not all parameter of webkit are not supported from the python
class. Adding this breaks nothing, has no risk for other installation
but make the live easy for the few people needing it.

I m not happy to maintain my own branch but at the moment OpenERP S.A.
force it.
