Re: Account financial reserve naming

Maybe a good name would be account_partner_fund ?

In a nutshell, we have the following concepts in these modules (as I understand it after a quick reminder from Cedric, errors and imprecisions are mine, but the general idea should be this):

- funds (cagnottes) are created
- a balance sheet account is used to track the funds, with all journal items in this account having a m2o to the corresponding fund + partner_id
- funds can be credited with balance sheet movements (bank to fund, no VAT impact)
- funds can be used as payment means
- when funds expire, there is a debit fund / credit revenue, and at that moment some VAT is due

Hi all,

We want to put some modules we did to OCA, but before we want to validate naming with some native english speakers as some translations are ambiguous.

We want to modelize a financial reserve (we named it in French 'cagnotte' - that is translated at first sight jackpot or pot(the ambiguous one :-) ) through account moves that feed a waiting account. 

These entries should allow to pay invoices later (we know the 'wallet' in development on Odoo side but this is quite different as based on accounting entries).

If we can have a little feedback from some of you on our future baby name.
