Re: Class or class_obj
Leonardo's et al,
I would prefer to define the project as the subset of OCA projects rather
than Odoo as a whole.
OCA keeps our conventions up to date and have discussions like this in the
We also have control of them.
OCA conventions are generally far closer to pep8 making automated checking
Odoo has mixed examples of everything all through their code. Even for
this particular point you will see _pool, _model, _obj or nothing.
That said having read the arguments on both sides throughout the linked
issue I have no clue about what the convention should be. Personally I
prefer the CapWords argument, even though it diverges from PEP8. Really it
is used like a class but at the same time if you were reassigning say
StringIO within a local scope it would be lowercase (I don't know why you
would do this). Given our existing convention of _obj I'd want very
widespread agreement to change and have that change clearly documented
before allowing PR's to use CapWords for models assigned from the registry
within a local scope.
