Hi Virginie

In the post you are mentioning people to react below the blog post, but I can't... so then here:

As a part of communication - maybe a method can be to make a platform that facilitates functional people to write attractive documentation/blogs/howto's about solving Odoo problems with OCA modules. For one, this could supplement the thorough lack of documentation on Odoo CE; but also, if consultants and clients read these blogs with examples and understand better that OCA modules are better than alternatives, because they:

- usually solve problems in the best way, as there is hard-won community consensus on their design
- are designed to interoperate together as a holistic eco-system
- are extendible (even better than most Odoo modules are)
- are quality-controlled
- are OpenUpgradable
- etc.

Then they would understand better why it can be commercially more interesting to choose OCA modules and avoid technical debt, then go for the latest and greatest Odoo version supported by some crude customizations and App Store modules, and become disappointed in Odoo in the long run. And then, they would also become motivated to financially support OCA.

A case in point is for example the import/export modules in the "queue" repository - I'm seeing so many inferior hand-rolled syncing implementations lately, that I'm very motivated to write a furious blog to tell everyone to stop doing that and build on the OCA solution. But now, aside from starting my own blog on the subject, I wouldn't know where to place such an article.
