Re: Is a new hidden folder '.oca/' in OCA repositories acceptable?

This looks fine to me to have some meta data stored for oca tools.

So .oca is a generic directory and for each tool you can add a subfolder like you did with the .oca/oca-port folder. Which is good as it gives room for other tools.
Another option would be to have a more generic folder name like .tools but it's only a matter of taste to me.

Direct link to the example:

Hi everyone,

While working on a new feature of 'oca-port' 
(, I would like to store some 
data in the git repository so they are shared between all contributors 
using this tool.

Here it is about blacklisting some migrations (with a comment), so 
another contributor who try to port a module/PR will get warned that it 
has been blacklisted (and why) for a given branch.

This new '.oca' hidden folder could host files for any kind of OCA tools 
in the future, but before going further I would like to know if it's 
something you are comfortable with?
