Re: OCA rental solution and rental vertical repository requestby
Open for Small Business, Graeme Gellatly
I think something has been miscommunicated. Talk to Frederik, but as far as I knew if not approved, it was already way down that track. Better to pick that up than restart. I think the main issue was just resolving a conflict with the existing repository.

Hello everybody, this year we have been busy implementing a complete rental solution based on Odoo CE v12 and lots of OCA modules for a German customer. It is already in production use since July. We explicitly agreed on contributing all the code to the OCA, but due to COVID-19 restrictions and several personal complications this work was considerably delayed. We already asked in March this year for a repository to check-in all the code directly at OCA, but IIRC there was not much interest back then. Ben Brich was also involved in the design and implementation of parts of the code, and Frederik Kramer should know about it, too. The solution we have has been designed for a German customer business renting large machines and vehicles, but it should be useful for other lines of business as well. Considerable efforts have been invested to make it really useful from the pragmatic point of view of the customer. There is a short presentation video at Youtube: --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzO5NqgJWD0 Currently we've got 31 modules for rental extensions and 3 for shipment extensions based on a module that was present on Odoo v8: rental_base/ rental_contract/ rental_contract_insurance/ rental_contract_month/ rental_contract_toll_collect/ rental_forward_shipment_plan/ rental_loan/ rental_menu_crm/ rental_offday/ rental_pricelist/ rental_product_instance/ rental_product_instance_appointment/ rental_product_instance_repair/ rental_product_insurance/ rental_product_pack/ rental_product_set/ rental_product_variant/ rental_purchase_order_type/ rental_quality_control/ rental_repair/ rental_reporting/ rental_routing/ rental_sale/ rental_timeline/ rental_timeline_offday/ rental_timeline_product_instance/ rental_timeline_product_instance_appointment/ rental_timeline_product_variant/ rental_timeline_repair/ rental_timeline_transport/ rental_toll_collect/ shipment_plan/ shipment_plan_rental/ shipment_plan_sale/ Base for the work is the module sale_rental from the sale-workflow repository; it has been renamed in our code as rental_sale with some slight modifications in order to avoid conflicts when using code from both repositories. All other rental modules above are new. We've synchronized the code to a Github repository now at https://github.com/elego/rental-vertical/tree/v12 where you can inspect it. It is still missing some documentation and the test coverage is only at 73% so there is still room for improvements. We're going to continue to work on that, but would also like your opinions an comments on everything. We're using the v12 branch as internal integration branch there and could merge from there to an 'official' 12.0 branch now and then. The structure of everything should be according to the OCA conventions as far as we know and understand them; some adaptations may of course be necessary. Please let us know how to proceed with contributing this code to the OCA. I think it should be fit at least for an alpha-status in a new repo.
